About this Item

Shoe manufactury was the Endicott-Johnson Company's business and it did well until market forces, especially foreign factories with cheap labor, caused an international upheaval, not just in shoe factories, but all U.S. manufacturing. This manuscript book offers detailed descriptions of leather preparation techniques and dye formulas as scattered throughout the volume on a total of 74 pages. Also recorded here are charts indicating numbers of hides dyed, as well as which colors were produced on which days. The colors of the 1920s are less common today and their names and details will convey a great deal to fashion historians: Muskox, Esquimo, Velour, Coffee Elk, and Box Brownstone, to list a few. => Needless to say the dye color formulae were proprietary and consequently copies of them rare. The loose leaves are not excised from the book but are a mix of internal company documents and communications received from suppliers. Provenance: John Donnelly, whose name appears at the top of two loose leaf of technical tables laid in the bound volume. => An important, suggestive resource for 1920s fashion research, industrial chemistry of the period, and American shoe manufacturing. Various sizes (12mo to folio). Bound volume and 10 single sheets (74 pp. used). A stationer's blank book with lined paper; boards covered with a faux leather that is separating from them; good condition. The ten separate leaves have been removed from volume and are housed separately in a Mylar sleeve. Bookseller Inventory # 35989
