A Handbook of Weaves has been a reliable and comprehensive source of information on the structure of fabric since it was first published in 1915. It covers the field thoroughly from the simple structure of plain weave to the more complicated multi-harness crepe and broché weaves with clear and lucid text, and 1875 diagrams. This book is a fully indexed reference, a lucid how-to do-it book and a storehouse of unusual information and practical suggestions that belongs on every serious weaver's bookshelf.

This is an advanced book and not a "how to" book of weave structures and drafts. It does not include basic (threading, tie-up, treading) draft information for the journeyman or inexperienced weaver, however, for an experienced weaver it is a treasure trove of patterns.
