About this book

Textiles are a key component of the industrial and consumer revolutions, yet we lack a coherent picture of how the marketing of textiles varied across the long 18th century and between different regions. This book provides important new insights into the ways in which changes in the supply of textiles related to shifting patterns of demand.

Reviews

“The principal achievement of this book is that of providing the comparative perspective promised by the title. … each chapter can be read as a case study that not only relates to existing literature but also provides new, detailed information highlighting trends … . Equally significantly, it directs readers to areas where there is potential for further or comparable research, thus encouraging further work in this field.” (Sally Tuckett, Textile History, Vol. 47 (1), 2016)
