Excerpt from A Complete Dictionary of Dry Goods and History of Silk, Linen, Wool and Other Fibrous Substances: Including a Full Explanation of the Modern Processes of Spinning, Dyeing and Weaving, With an Appendix Containing a Treatise on Window Trimming, German Words and Phrases, Together With Various Useful Tables
NO labor or expense has been spared to make the work serve the purposes for which it is intended; the statements, figures, and tables which are presented are given only on the faith of recognized authorities, and in reducing the chaos of particulars relating to the history, literature, manufacture, sale, and distinguishing characteristics of textile fabrics strict and, careful attention has been paid to accuracy.
If the dictionary will aid the apprentice to more fully understand the essential points of his chosen occupation, or furnish the more experienced salesman with correct informa tion upon subjects of which he is in ignorance, the hope that inspired its preparation will be amply realized.
