This is a hardback, linen bound first edition copy of a remarkable historical book of just under 600 pages which tells the fascinating history together with detailed accounts and reports of the time and many black and white illustrations.
There is age and marking to the cover, but the book itself is in good condition. I had to show you Leonardo Da Vinci's beautiful sketch of a spinning wheel
- and the table of contents.
This is a true textile-lover's book - an absolute treasure!
