London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown and Green. 1831. Small Octavo. Apparently part of The Cabinet Cyclopaedia series (conducted by the deliriously wonderfully named Dionysius Lardner "Assisted by Eminent Literary and Scientific Men." Bound in full contemporary diced calf with red title label. Upper joint expertly repaired. Smart, bright and strong with a little bit of scuffing to joints and extremities. All edges marbled. Internally clean, ink ownerships to front flyleaf, profusely illustrated. Pretty much everything you need to get a potted overview of 19th century silk manufacture, which obviously is something no literary or scientific person of eminence should be without. Pretty and interesting. Item #41245
