THIS volume gives a readable, popular account of the whole field which the cotton industry includes, beginning with the historical records, and passing successively through the cotton fields, the mills, and the markets. The book is well printed and illustrated, but, especially on the technical side, it would be improved by a number of corrections when it reaches the second edition.


By George Bigwood. ("Staple Trades and Industries," vol. ii.) Pp. viii + 2O4.(London: Constable and Co., Ltd., 1918.) Price 6s. 6d. net.
