The Dyeing and Cleaning of Textile Fabrics. A Handbook for the Amateur and the Professional

Nature volume 81, page 5 (01 July 1909) | Download Citation



A HANDBOOK was published some time ago under some such title as “Every Man His Own Lawyer.” To what particular class of people such a book is useful it is not easy to say, but it is fairly safe to assume that the work of the legal profession was not materially lessened by its publication. The book above mentioned might with equal aptness have been termed “Every Man His Own Dyer,” but the probability is that the people who are successful in dyeing their own clothes will be even smaller in number than those who are satisfied with the result of their own legal efforts.
