Hartford, Con. Published by Andrus and Judd, [ca. 1831?]. 12mo. 180 x 115 mm., (7 x 4 1/2 inches). xv, 123 pp. One woodcut illustration in the text. Bound in publisher's cloth; faded, remnants of paper label on spine; wanting front free endpaper, some light spotting to the text, especially at the inner margin.
Second? American edition; originally published in London in 1817, followed by a Philadelphia edition, ca.1830. As much a manual for cleaning used textiles as a guide to dyeing. Interesting from the point of view of establishing and succeeding at a second hand business, where old materials are recycled by cleaning, bleaching and dyeing. This edition is fully indexed.
Rink 1870 for the Philadelphia edition. OCLC cites many copies of all edition in American libraries. (376). Item #376
