Paisley: Alexander Gardner, 1904. The history of Paisley and its shawl, with several color plates. Bearing that attractive bookstore plate of Carl Wendelin Kuehny in Cleveland (twice) and previous owner’s name on ffep. A very fresh copy of this handsome book…in fact, it’s very hard to believe that it’s over 100 years old—but the spine is a tad darkened and the endpapers browned. Hinges starting. Old article on paisley glued in at back cover.
