JACQUARD MECHANISM AND HARNESS MOUNTING. In describing the numerous mechanical details, consideration has first been devoted to the relation and function of each part before attempting any description of its action in combination with its conterminous and remote connections, a plan which, no doubt, the student and reader alike will find advantageous. The subject is divided into four parts. In Part I., which deals with the evolution of figure and Jacquard weaving. The vital section of the book is in Part 11. which embraces the mechanism and fundamental principles of Jacquard weaving, including descriptions with illustrations of all the best standard and special types of Jacquards employed in modern practice. Part III. provides all the general and fundamental principles of Harness Mounting together witha description of the preparatory processes relating thereto. Finally Part IV illustrations and treatment embracing Card Cutting, Repeating, and Lacing includes a description of mechanism and exposition of how it works. This work was originally published in 1912-many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
