Cahier de Théorie 4e Année 3e.by (Fabric weaving manuscript).- Felix, M. & J. Mercier.
108 pp. unique manuscript written for a course in fabric weaving in Eastern France circa 1895, the painstakingly detailed work describing the placement of threads on the loom (presumably industrial) in order to produce over 60 exquisite patterns on an impressive array of fabric types, such as silk damask, pekin, droguet, satin, brocatelle, matelasse, velour, and lampas, most intended for dress making with a few upholstery samples, in addition to detailed drawings showing the set up for the loom, most patterns also have actual swatches of fabric and hand-painted color patterns for technical notations. Some age darkening on a couple of pp., minor staining on title page. Tall small folio. 3/4 cloth and boards, tie-bound, edges slightly rubbed, one signature loose. N.p. (Lyon?) n.d. (circa 1895).
