Descripción: Dorothy Tomlinson Stockton, 1996. Large 8vo, xvi,144,pp., with 19 illustrations and 66 samples of bookcloth, orig. cloth, slip-case, t.e.g. The first and arguably the only comprehensive study of the science and history of manufacturing bookcloth. Offers "a study of early use and the rise of manufacture/ Winterbottom's dominance of the trade in Britain and America/ production methods and costs/ and the identification of qualities and designs" (subtitle). Focuses on the development and use of starch-filled bookcloth in particular, from building factories to the formation of the Winterbottom Book Cloth Company in 1891, which dominated the industry for almost a century. Examines the process of producing the various types of bookcloths in the Victoria Mills in Weaste, Salford, enhanced by illustrations of the production machinery such as starch mangles, drying cylinders and spreaders. Lists prices and costs of production. Minutely describes fifty individual qualities of cloth with details of who made them and when they were available. The real treasure of this book is the section at the end containing 36 tipped-in samples of the qualities and 30 examples of designs, which bring the processes and treatments described in the text to life in a way that words alone simply cannot. This volume compels the reader to be "aware of all the processes that cloth goes through, and the potential hazards involved in manufacturing a consistent product in a range of scores of thousands of 'effects' (grains, colours and combinations thereof). with new eyes and more respect for the people who made them" (Bernard Middleton's Foreword, viii). Includes bibliography and extensive notes and appendices. Colour portrait frontispiece of Archibald Winterbottom (1814-1884) and colour portrait of George Harold Winterbottom (1860-1934), the founders of the Winterbottom Book Cloth Company (1891-1980). Due to the large amount of bookcloth samples contained in this book, the original published price of this work was Â£325. Nº de ref. de la librería 32608
