BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: IRISH UNIVERSITIES PRESS: TEXTILES
(Industrial Revolution section) 10 volumes large folio. * PHOTOGRAPHS & FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. This set presents the reports of successive Select Committees appointed to investigate several aspects of the textile industry from 1800 to 1850. The early reports deal with old laws and statues which were hampering the changeover from cottage to factory manufacture. The underlying principle of the reports was that undue restriction on industrial expansion should be removed. In the later reports recommendations on job mobility, emigration and education, which were to be important afterwards, were tentatively made. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of these papers overcame this by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in the publisher's original half green morocco leather. They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear and have the great advantage over the original printings because on a strong laid acid free paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has neat library stamp on front endpaper and verso title, otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. (Book ref. 20071)   £400.00
