Calculations Yarns and Fabrics. originally published in 1900.This work embodies both theoretical and practical knowledge and experience gained by the author during several years as manager and designer in the manufacture of worsted, wollen, and mixed goods, and susequently of eight years exclusive experience as a lecturer on the preparation of yarns and of their manufacture into woven textures. The book supplies the reader with a collection of the more important systems of counting yarns, costing cloths etc and also demonstrates from first principles the why and wherefore of all the methods and formulae deduced in this treatise. Examples have been fully worked out to exemplify every phase of the subject, and from which formulae are deduced. A series of exercises with answers is also appended to each chapter, meeting a necessity which has often been felt by the textile students and lecturers. 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.
