After a second London edition of 1858, there was a period when the book was out-of-print until Baird brought out an improved second American edition up-dated with new material on the chemistry of coal tar colors(aniline dyes) by the chemist and engineer A.A. Fesquet, an appendix digesting the reports of the international jury on the dyeing and calico printing shown in the Universal Exposition, Paris, 1867, and full index.
