Silkworms. Originally published in 1892. This book presents an account of the history of silk culture and many detailed chapters of the life, growth and rearing of the silkworm. Includes a wealth of information on management and diseases of silkworms. 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.
