by Scoresby, William
viii, 136 pp. 8vo. 1968 reissue of 1845 original (Sabin 78168). A work based on two lectures by the author before the Bradford Church Institution, which led to 'a principal mill-owner... requesting the publication of the statements on a subject deemed of peculiar importance in a district, like that of Bradford, in which such a vast population is employed in its extensive mills and manufactories.' Includes a brief description of progress of American manufacturers, and an in-depth (and favorable) account of the factory at Lowell.
