      BOOKCLOTH 1823 - 1980

      By William Tomlinson

      First edition. The first and only comprehensive study of Winterbottom's
      methods of manufacturing bookcloth. This work includes a study of early use
      and the rise of Winterbotton Book Cloth Co. and its dominance of the trade
      in Britain and America for almost a century. Tomlinson focuses on the
      development and use of starch-filled bookcloth in particular. He examines
      the process of producing the various types of bookcloths in the Victoria
      Mills plant. The book is enhanced by illustrations of the production
      machinery such as starch mangles, drying cylinders and spreaders. Lists
      prices and costs of production are revealed with fifty descriptions of cloth
      with details of who made them and when they were available. One of the real
      treasures of this book is a section with 36 tipped-in feeler samples and 30
      examples of designs, bringing the processes and treatments described in the
      text to life. "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, colors and combinations thereof); with new eyes and
      respect for the people who made them" (Bernard Middleton's Forward). This
      scholarly edition includes a bibliography with extensive notes and
      appendices. Color portrait frontispiece of Archibald Winterbottom
      (1814-1884) and color portrait of George Harold Winterbottom (1860-1934),
      the founders of the Winterbottom Book Cloth Company (1891-1980). Contains 19
      illustrations. Originally sold for $500.00, now a limited number is offered
      for $95.00.
