Brooklyn: Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, 1944. Softcover. G (Ex-art library with cover label and few marks and labels inside; has average wear and aging to covers; pages are fairly clean; has some instances of light handwriting near text.). Light olive paper wraps, 56 pp., 56 BW illus. "The earliest textiles that have come down to us are those found in graves of the predynastic period in Egypt. Their exact date is undetermined, but they must hav been woven at some time before 3000 -- perhaps even before 4000 -- B.C. They show a technique already advanced beyond the most primitive stage of weaving, for, though apparently made on small, very simple looms, they employ spun thread instead of untwisted fibers." (p. 1) This lengthy and illustrated narrative explores these discoveries. Scarce.
