THE book under notice is an admirable illustration of the great advance textile technology has made chiefly through the influence of the great technical schools established in the textile districts of Great Britain. Students and the mill men have been allowed only a mere smattering of the detailed work associated with any given process so far as text-books are concerned, and even the long and patient acquisition of knowledge in the mill has been confined to the limited branch of the work on which they were and are engaged. A specialised book such as this is now throws open to all information hitherto confined to a few. Both mental development and manipulative ability must result from a study of its contents.
