"Contains not only an account of the fabrics which were made in England in bygone days, but also of their prototypes, the 'painted callicoes' imported from India in vast quantities in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and of their rivals the French 'Toiles de Jouy,' which, at the end of the eighteenth century and the early nineteenth, had so considerable a vogue here as to form a serious menace to our growing cottn industry. The numerous illustrations have been chosen from the cottons of many countries and periods, and form a guide to the styles in use at different times." (preface) Scarce.
