9781330650134: The Irish Linen Trade Hand-Book and Directory (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Irish Linen Trade Hand-Book and Directory

I am aware that other and abler pens have already dealt with the subject; but there are some matters referred to in this work which have not been previously touched upon, and, as furnish ing a historic epitome of our staple industry, carried down to the present date, this will be found a handy book for reference.

In the preparation of the work - which occupied a considerable time - I was indebted to several friends for the use of books Of reference, and for information on many points; and, for his kind ness in this respect, my acknowledgments are especially due to the author of Ireland and her Staple Manufactures.

To a considerable number of our local Manufacturers and Merchants I feel indebted for the encouragement I received from the time I commenced the work, and I trust the result of my labours may not fall very far short of their expectations.

In a future edition I shall have a better opportunity of rendering the Directory a more complete guide to the trade than it was possible to make it in the present one. I feel much obliged to several correspondents in various places for furnishing information to enable me to compile this section.

I have omitted referring to the Legislative control of Factories, and also to some other matters which would have possessed interest, but these I hope to deal. With on a future occasion.

This work has been published at my own risk, and, it is but right to add, that for the matter itself I am also solely responsible.
