Jacquard (Weaving Treatises)

Sixteen manuscript treatises on weaving with Jacquard looms, containing instructions, illustrations of looms, cloth swatches, thread samples, and punch card patterns. Fifteen treatises in French were created by students for coursework at the École de tissage de Lyon, France, 1855-1947, some including printed descriptions of Jacquard and Verdol looms, technical drawings of looms, and diagrams of punch cards. One treatise in German, by an unidentified creator, 1894-1895, is accompanied by additional manuscript notes; two printed articles about the Sächsische Webstuhlfabrik in Chemnitz, Germany, and Louis Ferdinand Schönherr, with technical drawings of looms, undated; two blueprint technical drawings of looms, undated; and a watercolor drawing of “Howard & Bullough's Sizing Machine,” undated.
