Practical Treatise on the Construction and Use of Knitting Machines Manufactured by Wm. Sellers & Sons, Airedale Works, Keighley, Yorkshire
2 Practical Treatise on the Construction and Use of Knitting Machines Manufactured by Wm. Sellers & Sons, Airedale Works, Keighley, Yorkshire
Leeds E. J. Arnold Cloth Fair 8vo. 
Undated. Cover title: "Sellers' Practical Treatise on the Construction & Use of Knitting Machines". Also included is a 4-page [one leaf folded] instruction in manuscript for knitting a child's jacket. 9 x 6 inches. Front endpaper detached: yellow blank recto with W.G. & J. Strutt ad to verso. Title page and textblock complete and securely bound through to the last paginated leaf: page 160 concluding the price list. Thereafter: parts illustration corresponding to p. 160 on recto followed by 3 pages of ads detached as one folded leaf. Final detached leaf has John R. Swaine ad recto and Index verso. This appears to me complete though lacking blank rear endpaper. I can't find another example with which to compare. Gilt embossed covers are mottled and holding to textblock by one ribbon only. "There is no kind of clothing which cannot be made on the Knitting Machine by an experienced Knitter, and very many articles for domestic use; such as antimacassars, window shades, fringes, mats, and shawls, all of which are easily produced" [p. 6]. Set-up directions, "How to Wind the Yarn", and specifics followed by 70 illustrated "Instructions" for a wide variety of vestments including football jersey and football pants, ladies' plain knit undervest, theatrical tights and stockings, child's princess costume, and of course various caps: tam o'shanter, sweep, and dunce... concluding with Gent's Fancy Ribbed Stocking. More specifications at rear, including size-list, irregularities in the work, price list of Sellers' Knitting-Machine parts for classes 1 and 2 including pictorial leaf of the parts, and adverts.
