Limited to 300 copies. The work of fabric designer William Kilburn (1745-1818), known mainly for his chintz designs. This book reproduces Kilburn's 1800 pocket book, which includes 62 basic units for repeating patterns. The album was later used as a scrapbook by his grandson, which ensured its survival. Introductory text with references. Tipped-in frontispiece and specimens in text. Color illustrations. Accompanied by a booklet, bound in stiff paper wrappers, of sixteen patterns, made by Sholto Drumlanrig from Kilburn's original units. Prospectus laid in.
