Statistics of the Cotton Trade Arranged in a Tabular Form.

By BURN, Richard:

Simpkin, Marshall, London, 1847, pp. xvi, plus 34 pages of tables, of which several are folding and mounted on linen. Original cloth, ex-library. Please note that this is NOT a pretty copy. The spine is damaged and crudely repaired with clear tape, the boards are dull and worn, the contents are dusty and foxed in places. However the book contains a mass of statistics on such matters as cotton yarn exports, cotton thread exports, calico exports, cambrics and muslins, average prices, money value of exports, numbers of cotton mills, bankruptcies, etc, etc. We do not usually list books which look like this, but it is perfectly useable as a working copy and is surely worth preserving.
