19th Century British
Sewing Machine Companies

by Geoff Dickens.

This quality A4 hardback volume comprises of 280 pages containing in excess of 600 illustrations and colour photographs.
Researched entirely afresh from primary sources, we believe the book offers the most comprehensive insight ever produced on the subject of native British sewing machine companies during the Victorian period.

The histories of over 70 establishments can be found, ranging from the largest to the most obscure, a number of which have not been referenced for more than a century. For each company you will find dates of operation, patents, registered designs, machines produced and principal individuals concerned.

Martin Gregory, editor of ISMACS magazine, says:
“A mine of reliable information, most of which you cannot find elsewhere.”

Inclusive prices = UK £90, airmail to Europe £100, rest of world £110.
