INTRODUCTION


HISTORIOGRAPHY OF THE INDUSTRY


Like many of Britain's great industries, the cotton industry has generated a prodigious historical literature, covering the major economic and technical aspects of the industry as well as the social impact which cotton made upon the lives of those living and working in the shadow of the mill. The importance of the cotton industry in the North West of England ensured that as the industry grew, the number and diversity of accounts increased in proportion to the development of the trade.


EARLY ACCOUNTS

Early contemporary works were biassed towards the technical, organisational, legal and economic aspects of the cotton industry, rather than the consideration of the wider implications of the bourgeoning cotton industry for the rapidly expanding workforce. Later generations of historians were to draw conclusions regarding the transformation of working lives brought about by production being moved out of the home and into the more intensive, regimented and impersonal environment of the factory. Similarly, later studies have put the events of the pre-Industrial and Industrial Revolution periods into context. Early contemporary accounts include localised studies such as James Ogden's A Description of Manchester (1783) which details the rise of the industry in Cottonopolis. More common than such general accounts were specific pamphlets which dealt with the burning issues of the day such as patenting, importation and the avoidance of sharp practice.


NINETEENTH CENTURY ACCOUNTS

The Age of Reform

The changing character of the industry was mirrored by the changing character of the historical literature. By the early part of the century, industrialisation impinged on the lives of those working in the cotton industry to such an extent that the factory reform movement gathered pace, the literature of this period being spearheaded by men such as Peter Gaskell, William and Samuel Greg, James Phillips Kay, Richard Oastler (the "King of Factory Children), Robert Owen, Michael Sadler, Samuel Kydd, and those who had been victims of the cruelties and privations of the factory system such as William Dodd. As the century wore on, concerns about welfare continued to follow in the grimy shadow of the Industrial Revolution, particularly the effects of the factory system on the individual and the family. Factory Commissioners such as Leonard Horner helped to enforce the Factory Acts, which were passed with the help of prominent figures such as Robert Peel and Anthony Ashley Cooper (7th Earl of Shaftesbury). There was, of course, a complementary movement which sought to defend the factory masters against the onslaughts of the factory reformers, a particularly forceful repudiation made by Harriet Martineau, who warned against "meddling legislation." The pressure for reform came from both ends of the workforce. While those in authority were keen to ameliorate the condition of factory workers from on high, as it were, and the trades union movement began to develop its own identity and strategies for improving working conditions and pay. Early associations such as the Friendly Associated Cotton Spinners, formed in 1795 and the Union of Weavers had their own agenda and champions, such as Colonel Joseph Hanson, "the Weaver's Friend".

Lancashire Cotton Famine

Between the rise of the cotton industry and its consolidation as one of Britain's major trades comes the major discontinuity of the Cotton Famine. The advent of the American Civil War saw American raw cotton supplies dwindle, and between 1861-1865 the suffering of workers in the cotton industry - especially in Lancashire - where thousands upon thousands of workers were reduced to poverty. Contemporary historians such as R. A Arnold, drew parallels between the privations suffered and the passing of legislation such as the Public Works Act, while contemporary works of the period were obviously preoccupied with finding other sources of raw cotton supply. A positive aspect of this dark period of Lancastrian history is the development of good will brought about by relief committees, near and far, in their attempts to reduce the suffering incurred by cotton workers throughout their four- year ordeal.  Perhaps the best known general study of the Cotton Famine is W.O. Henderson's The Lancashire Cotton Famine 1861- 1865 published in 1934.

Biographical Works

A valuable adjunct to the historical studies of the period were the biographies published throughout the century. These works include studies of the "great men" (Arkwright, Crompton, Hargreaves, Kay, etc.) of the industry, and biographical and autobiographical works detailing working-class life in the industry.

Technical Literature

The technical literature continued to grow throughout the Nineteenth Century, both in quantity and detail. The already prodigious periodical literature was supplemented by pamphlets and volumes detailing all the technical processes. For instance, James Butterworth had published his Guide to Universal Manufacture by 1801 which was one of the first widely available weaving manuals; Etchells' The Cotton Spinner's Assistant (1820) provided an even more detailed guide to spinning. The number of technical manuals increased, as also did the frequency with which they were revised. Towards the end of the century, the emergence of a generation of specialist experts such as William Scott Taggart (spinning), James Holmes, Wilfred Middlebrook (weaving), Frederick Crace-Calvert and Edmund Knecth (finishing) elevated these technical works to new heights.

General Studies

There were a number of good general studies in the Nineteenth Century, which offered a general overview of the cotton industry, good early examples being James Butterworth's   A Complete History of the Cotton Trade (1823) and Edward Baines's History of the Cotton Manufacture in Great Britain (1835). Later in the century, Thomas Ellison offered an equally comprehensive offering, The Cotton Trade of Great Britain (1886) which also shifted the focus away from Cottonopolis and towards the important cotton trading port of Liverpool, so vital to the movement of raw materials and cotton goods.

TWENTIETH CENTURY ACCOUNTS

A Century of Decline

Whilst the Twentieth Century saw the decline of the cotton industry, it saw the ascendancy of cotton history. If King Cotton was sick, it was not for the shortage of economic, social and technical debate generated. If the historian's productivity was no longer matched by the ailing cotton industry, the same cannot be said for those engaged in the publication of trade and house journals, directories, technical manuals, economic studies, official reports and parliamentary papers. Much of the twentieth-century material produced on the industry has been undertaken by, or on behalf of, a range of organisations connected with the industry itself (e.g., Empire Cotton Growing Association, International Federation of Cotton and Allied Textile Industries, Shirley Institute, Textile Institute, United Textile Factory Workers' Association) or governments (Board of Trade, British Productivity Council, Cotton Board, Economic Advisory Council, League of Nations, O.E.C.D.). Indeed, by any standards, the institutional output in this century has been nothing short of phenomenal: employers' organisations such as the International Federation of Master Cotton Spinners' and Manufacturers' Associations have published comprehensive accounts of their meetings and conferences. Trade unions have also been actively involved in the attempt to reverse the decline of the industry. Individuals have identified a number of factors relevant to the decline, economic, technological, organisational, managerial and governmental. In the technical sphere, the ongoing argument relating to the adoption of new technologies typified by the "stubborn mules" debate of which Lazonick, Sandberg, Saxonhouse and Wright have written.


Shifting Focus: The Academic Agenda

Modern historical studies have moved the academic agenda towards the plight of the individual, family and community through the various stages of the industry's history. The "academisation" of cotton history has also yielded an extremely valuable crop of theses and dissertations not only on the social, economic and technological aspects of the cotoon industry, but also its legacy of buildings and communities throughout the North West region. In recent years, a number of important studies have been undertaken into the role of the family in the industry,19 and the important role of women in the cotton trade has been identified in studies such as Pinchbeck's Women Workers and the Industrial Revolution (1930). The experiences of children in the industry have been related in autobiographical works such as Michael Conway's Half Timer (a Stockport Mill Boy Remembers) (1983),  and academic studies, as in Per Bolin-Hort (1989), Work, Family and the State: Child Labour and Organisation of Production of the British Cotton Industry, 1780-1920.


BIBLIOGRAPHIES ON THE INDUSTRY

In dealing with the large and extensive literature of a major industry, the overwhelming amount of both primary and secondary material can actually work against the understanding of the subject under consideration: there is simply too much material to easily make sense of the literature. One need look no further than Benson, Neville and Thompson's superb Bibliography of the British Coal Industry for confirmation of the value of a dedicated subject bibliography in helping to identify and organise such a large and diverse literature. Many the major studies on the cotton industry are appended by excellent bibliographies, for example, Douglas Farnie's bibliography in The English Cotton Industry and the World Market, 1815-1896 (1979, pp.340-84), W. O. Henderson's thorough listing in The Lancashire Cotton Famine 1861-1865. (1934, 1994 repr., pp.157-94), and Anthony Howe's The Cotton Masters, 1830-1860. (1984, pp.319-41), are just a few of many such bibliographies.
In the case of subject bibliographies, the most comprehensive was Woodbury's two-volume work of 1909, Bibliography of the Cotton Manufacture, which provided an early global guide to the industry. Brian Yates's How to Find Out About the United Kingdom Cotton Industry (1967), gave excellent coverage to the industry itself, whilst The British Cotton Industry Research Association/Shirley Institute Summary of Current Literature (1921-) provided detailed information on technical and other writings. Smaller guides such as the Portico Library's A Portico Bibliography (1991), and Lancashire Museum Service, I Love the Knell of the Factory Bell (1980), offered the general reader a selection of general works. More specialised bibliographies include Coulson's A Bibliography of Design in Britain, 1851-1950 (1979), and Leslie Lawrie, A Bibliography of Dyeing and Textile Printing (1949). However, other than Volume 13 of the Lancashire Bibliography, Textiles, compiled by Ruth Cowley in 1991, there is a shortage of comprehensive general bibliographies on this most important of industries.

INTRODUCTION TO THE BIBLIOGRAPHY

This volume fulfils two purposes. The first is to provide a conclusion to Volume 13: Textiles: originally, the remit of the second textile volume was to provide a guide to parliamentary papers, but it quickly became apparent that such was the range of other materials in the North West - particularly on trade unions, employers' organisations, technical studies and archival collections - that a fuller study was needed in order to do justice to the collections of the libraries, museums and archives across the region. The second purpose is to provide as full and comprehensive guide to cotton as is possible, and to guide the reader through not only the secondary literature, but also the plethora of primary source material which exists throughout the North West.

NATURE AND SCOPE OF THE BIBLIOGRAPHY

Our focus in compiling the bibliography has been to concentrate on material collected around the North West. However, such was the global nature of the cotton industry that any bibliography covering the whole industry naturally extends beyond the boundaries of Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria and Merseyside. The volume is also a select bibliography, and although reflecting the extensive cotton literature which exists throughout the world, the emphasis has been upon that which is available or relevant to North West England. Our research has enabled us to establish a database of some 6,000 references, of which we were able to select the most suitable materials. Those interested are therefore welcome to contact us at the Regional Library System in Manchester, where we will be happy to supply further information from the database.

Structure of the Work

The bibliography has been organised into six main sections, each addressing a different aspect of the cotton industry in the North West. Each of these sections contains individual book lists on relevant subjects. In order to assist the reader in his or her endeavours to make sense of the literature, it is hoped that these sections proceed in a clear and logical sequence. Beginning with general reference materials (Part 1), through the historical/academic studies (Part II), which consist of general and period histories, international studies, company histories, working and social conditions, employers' organisations and trades unions. Technical and industrial works follow (Part III), with dictionaries and general studies preceding works on each of the major cotton processes (preparation, spinning, weaving and finishing). Parilamentary Papers and Government Publications (Part IV) are divided into sections on cotton factories, the Cotton Famine, cotton finishing, cotton supply and cultivation, handloom weaving and Twentieth Century papers. Academic studies, theses and dissertations follow (Part V). The volume concludes with Archival collecitons (Part VI).

Scope of the Bibliography

Annotations

During our research, we visited dozens of repositories and reviewed literally thousands of items. Although we have attempted to survey every reference cited in the volume, such is the sheer volume of material that we were unable to examine every individual item. We have included annotations for certain works which we considered in need of clarification or because of their importance to the literature. These are, of course, to be regarded as a general guide only, and are by no means a detailed analysis of the work in question. Where possible, we have also directed the reader to supplementary studies, related items or critical reviews of the item in question.

Citation Detail

For the sake of brevity, we have included essential information pertaining to each reference where this was available to us. In the case of books, this includes such information as city of publication, publisher, year of publication, number of pages, volume number, series etc., but generally not physical information such as size, number of illustrations, maps, portraits and supplementary information such as bibliographies, indexes etc. Where there is an "exceptional" feature (such as an outstanding bibliography or illustrations, this information is covered in the abstracts). Article citations generally provide the name of the journal (and series if applicable), volume number, issue number, date and page numbers. Chapter citations give details of the book the chapter appears in, its editor, city of publication and publisher, and page numbers. The archival references are a summary of each of the collections on stock at a particular repository, and where possible carry the internal accession number in square brackets. For example, the first entry for Lancashire Record Office, Bury Brothers private ledgers and stock books can be located at LRO by quoting the number DDX812.

Locations

Besides providing bibliographical information, the volume also serves as a union listing of material covered. Each location has a unique number: for example, a reference marked Location: 3, 115, TI indicates that the item is on stock at Lancashire County Library, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Textile Institute. Although every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of these entries, such are the vicissitudes of the library world, that items given as on stock at a particular library at the time of compilation may well have been transferred or discarded at the time of reading. In all cases, the reader should contact the library in question before making a visit. Generally, public libraries will happily accommodate the reader and will make every attempt to supply the materials required, but in the case of rare material, proof of name and address may be required - sometimes in advance - and if not a member, lending may not be possible. In the case of academic libraries, it may not be possible to use the facilities without prior arrangement. Record Offices/Archive Departments often require their users to make an appointment in advance. This is also the case with many special libraries (e.g. the Textile Institute) and museums, where library materials are often kept away from public areas.



SECTION-BY-SECTION GUIDE TO THE BIBLIOGRAPHY

PART I: REFERENCE WORKS

Reference Works and Bibliographies

These works include textile encyclopedias, thesauri, catalogues and bibliographies, glossaries and other guides to the cotton and allied textile trades and processes. The American Fabrics and Fashion Magazine Encyclopedia of Textiles is a good example of the comprehensive textile encyclopedia which contains both technological and historical entries. Some of the bibliographical guides relate to a particular branch of the industry (for example, Martindale's Selective Bibliography of Textile Engineering, whilst others deal with particular collections (Blackburn Public Library, Catalogue of Books on Textiles and the Textile Industry). The best general bibliographies to begin with are Cowley, Woodbury, and Yates.

Directories

These publications comprise some of the most important source materials on the cotton and textile industries, especially for those interested in the development of particular technologies and firms. Amongst the most important are the Textile Mercury Cotton Year Book, Skinner's Cotton Trade Directory of the World and Worrall's long-lived Cotton Spinners and Manufacturers' Directory and complementary series Textile Directory of the Manufacturing Districts... . Early examples include the Manchester Exchange Directory, 1847-8 and Burn's Commercial Glance, 1840-44.

Periodicals and Yearbooks

These publications form a vast literature, ranging from local journals (Bury and District Textile Society Journal [76]), national journals (e.g. Canadian Textile Journal [77], Indian Textile Journal [96]) to publications with global coverage such as the International Cotton Bulletin [97] and the Textile World Fact File [134]. Major publications include the Cotton Factory Times [83], Shirley Institute Bulletin [109], Textile Manufacturer [119], the Textile Mercury [121], Textile Recorder [126] and Textile World [133]. Besides being a valuable source of information, for the historian these journals also serve as a barometer for the health of cotton industry: for example, the physical format of Cotton: The Official Journal of the Manchester Cotton Association (1895-1965) [79] reflects the decline of the industry itself: beginning in 1895, the journal was lavishly presented and bound. Yet by the time this important publication came to an end in 1965, it had been reduced to a cheaply presented fortnightly typescript, obviously produced on a shoestring with an ever-shrinking readership.

 
PART II: HISTORICAL STUDIES

Structure

We originally divided primary and secondary studies into separate sub-sections in Part II, but feedback from colleagues and our own misgivings led us to construct a simpler sequence where primary and secondary sources on the same period are presented together. It should be noted that the chronological structure used here is "fluid" insofar as one cannot easily separate events which are, say, two years apart: the overlapping and juxtaposition of events is part of the dynamic of history. The General Histories section includes works which span several periods, or are of such a generalised nature that they do not easily fall into one section. Many of the studies found in The Industry Before the Factory straddle the period covered by the following section, but they either begin in the pre-industrial period, or focus on the conditions at the outset of the Industrial Revolution. The Rise of the Factory, 1760-1820 covers the Industrial Revolution from its earliest rumblings to the roar of the its factories in the early opening decades of the Nineteenth Century. The Age of the Factory, 1820-1860 details works covering the maturation and continuing development of the industry and the cotton communities it engendered. One problem which arose independently of long-term British social and industrial factors was the climacteric of the American Civil War, beginning in 1861, which saw supplies of American raw cotton rapidly dwindle. The Lancashire Cotton Famine, 1861-1865 covers the Great Famine in detail, citing nearly two hundred works on what was an extremely troubled period for the industry and its people. The Victorian Golden Age, 1865-1896 covers the Mid-Victorian "Period of Optimism", although by the end of the century foreign competition and trade depressions had begun to erode this confidence. A final period of pre-World War I stability marks the end of the Victorian golden age and the decline into war: works covering this period are listed in Indian Summer, 1896-1914. The post-World War I and inter-war years are covered in The Long Decline, 1914-1939. The final section of the historical studies covers the End of the Industry, and covers World War II through to the1980s. The chronological sections are followed by Lancashire Cotton and the World, where the industry is put into an international perspective, particularly relating to India and the United States. An important part of the history of the industry is the rise of established cotton and textilefirms across the North West: Company Histories lists contemporary and retrospective histories of these firms, as well as studies of some of the great cotton families and business centres of the region. Working and Social Conditions considers the industry from the perspective indviduals and families who worked in the industry, and covers family life, child labour, women in the industry, factory reform and health and safety. Employers' Organisaations contains contemporary publications and histories of local, regional and international employers' associations. The historical studies conclude with a section on trades unions, which is divided into general studies and industrial disputes.

1. General Histories

As the industry developed, so the historical literature sought to keep pace with the rapid technological and social changes associated with "King Cotton". One of earliest works was John Kennedy's Observations on the Rise and Progress of the Cotton Trade in Great Britain (1815)  which concentrated on the growth of the rapid growth of the industry, particularly in Lancashire and the surrounding counties, while perhaps the first major study of the Nineteenth Century was James Butterworth's A Complete History of the Cotton Trade (1823), a comprehensive survey which covered many of the larger towns engaged in the industry as well as Cottonopolis herself - later forming the basis of Baines's History of the Cotton Manufacture of Great Britain (1835). Shortly after this, Richard Guest published his The British Cotton Manufactures (1823). Andrew Ure's two-volume work, The Cotton Manufacture of Great Britain (1836) covered all aspects of the industry as well as a large amount of statistical information. An early popular history was published as early as 1840, with Henry Brown's The Cotton Fields and Cotton Factories. An extensive American study by Ezekiel Donnell, Chronological and Statistical History of Cotton (1872) provides a comparable framework from across the Atlantic. Ellison's Cotton Trade of Great Britain (1886) surveyed the industry from a Liverpublian perspective, charting the rise of the city's firms. Sydney Chapman's Lancashire Cotton Industry: a Study in Economic Development (1904) is a standard text on the industry, as is a later work, Douglas Farnie, The English Cotton Industry and the World Market, 1815-1896 (1979), a detailed economic study of the industry in the Nineteenth Century. A recent study, under the editorship of Mary Rose, is The Lancashire Cotton Industry: a History Since 1700 (1996), a collection of articles covering all aspects of the industry from beginning to end which offers the ideal starting point for the general reader.

2. The Industry Before the Factory

Two classic texts on the early industry are Norman Lowe, The Lancashire Textile Industry in the Sixteenth Century (1972) and Wadsworth and Mann's The Cotton Trade and Inudstrial Lancashire 1600-1780 (1931). Walter English, The Textile Industry (1969) details the technological innovation of the early industry, while Beverly Lemire's recent study, Fashion's Favourite (1991) considers the crucial role of the consumer, looking at demand and consumption of cotton from the mid-Seventeenth Century. A good example of an early study is Thomas Sutcliffe, An Exposition of Facts Relating to the Rise and Progress of the Woollen, Linen, and Cotton Manufactures of Great Britaihn (1843).

3. The Rise of the Factory, 1760-1820

Many early works (for example, "Friend of the Poor" - Thomas Barnes' Thoughts on the Use of Machines in the Cotton Manufacture (1780) [351]) were concerned with the problems of social order brought about by events such as the Lancashire riots of 1779 and attempted to convince a sceptical working-class public that the new technology was a beneficial rather than detrimental feature of working life. At the same time, Ralph Mather appealed for the relief of poverty-stricken cotton workers in his An Impartial Representation of the Case of the Poor Cotton Spinners in Lancashire (1780) [430]. Of the many modern works written on the period, a good introduction is John Addy, The Textile Revolution (1976) [240]. Similarly, Catling's The Spinning Mule (1970) [275] is an excellent introduction to the technical history of a key compenent of the Industrial Revolution. G.W. Daniels [321-327], The Early English Cotton Industry (1920) [324] remains an important work. A later standard text is Fitton and Wadsworth's The Strutts and the Arkwrights, 1758-1830: A Study of the Early Factory System (1958) [345]. George Unwin's Samuel Oldknow and the Arkwrights (1924) [518] makes a similar contribution to the study of the early industry and factory system. The history of power is central to the history of the early industry. R. L. Hills [369-375] has written widely on the subject, and his Power in the Industrial Revolution (1970) [372] details the growth of the textile industry and the development of power generation. G. N. Von Tunzelmann has also made a study of the diffusion of steam power in the industrial revolution: see Steam Power and British Industrialisation to 1860 (1978) [513]. Stanley Chapman has covered economic history of the period, particularly on the issues of capital formation and the rise of the early factory masters. The Cotton Industry in the Industrial Revolution (1972, revised 1987) [286-287] is a concise yet informative introduction to the industry's development. David Jeremy [383- 393] has covered important issues relating to technology diffusion and transmission, particularly between Britain and the United States. See Transatlantic Industrial Revolution: The Diffusion of Textile Technologies Between Britain and America, 1790-1830s (1981) [393] for a detailed account. Roger Lloyd-Jones has charted the development of firms and economic structures, particularly in Manchester. See Manchester and the Age of the Factory. The Business Structure of "Cottonopolis" in the Industrial Revolution (1988) [416]. N. J. Smelser's Social Change in the Industrial Revolution (1959) [492] remains a pioneering sociological history of the industry. The industrial archaeology of the period has been considered in Jennifer Tann, The Development of the Factory (1970) [502].

4. The Age of the Factory, 1820-1860

Important contemporary works on this age of industry include William Radcliffe, Origin of the New System of Manufacture... (1828) [635], Andrew Ure, The Cotton Manufacture of Great Britain (1836, revised 1861) [657-658] and James Mann, The Cotton Trade of Great Britain (1860) [626]. An early regional study is W.C. Taylor, Notes of a Tour in the Manufacturing Districts of Lancashire (1842, revised 1968) [649-651]. Modern works include studies on the rise of the family firm, see Rhodes Boyson, The Ashworth Cotton Enterprise (1970) [545], and the decline in handloom weaving, two major studies being Duncan Bythell, The Handloom Weavers (1969) [548] and Geoff Timmins' The Last Shift: the Decline of Handloom Weaving in the Nineteenth Century (1993) [655]. Other works detail the rise of the factory system - see Anthony Howe, The Cotton Masters, 1830-1860 (1984) [596] and developments in the labour market, as covered by Michael Huberman, Escape from the Market. Negotiating Work in Lancashire (1996) [599]. A fine example of a local study is George C. Miller, Blackburn: the Evolution of a Cotton Town (1951) [628].

5. Lancashire Cotton Famine, 1861-1865

Primary studies of the Lancashire Cotton Famine include Arnold, The History of the Cotton Famine (1864) [666], and one of many comprehensive surveys of particular towns, S. A. Nicholls, Darwen and the Cotton Famine (1893) [728]. Mary Brigg (ed.), A Lancashire Weaver's Journal: John O'Neil, Low Moor, Clitheroe (1982) is a biographical stury, while John Watts, The Facts of the Cotton Famine, 1862-4 (1866) [742] covered the period in minute detail, with much statistical analysis. Later nineteenth-century works includeRobert Rawlinson, Public Works in Lancashire for the Relief of Distress...During the Cotton Famine, 1863-66 (1898) [735]. Major twentieth-century works include W. O. Henderson's classic study, The Lancashire Cotton Famine 1861-1865 (1934) [714], and Norman Longmate, The Hungry Mills: the Story of the Lancashire Cotton Famine, 1861-5 (1978). Mary Ellison, Support for Secession: Lancashire and the American Civil War (1972) [694] reappraises the Lancastrian attitude to the Civil War.

6. The Victorian Golden Age, 1865-1896

Early studies of the industry in the mid-late Victorian periods include John Mortimer, Mercantile Manchester Past and Present (1896) [812] and Gerhart von Schulze-Gaevernitz, The Cotton Trade in England and on the Continent (1895) [835]. Several modern-day historians have written extensively on the period, including Douglas Farnie [764- 768], William Lazonick [800-804, 808], Lars Sandberg [824-827] and Gary Saxonhouse [830-833]. A good introduction to the period is Andrew Marrison, "Indian Summer, 1870-1914" in Mary Rose (ed.) The Lancashire Cotton Industry: a History Since 1700 (1996) [807]. Sandberg, Lancashire in Decline: a Study in Entrepreneurship and International Trade (1974) [825] analyses the beginning of the industry's decline in some detail.


7. Indian Summer, 1896-1914

This section is dominated by the debate on tariffs and free trade which dominated the early years of the century. Studies of the period includethose by S. J. Chapman [863-873], Elijah Helm [887-891] and Charles Macara [902- 905], all of whom recognised the centrality of the tariff reform/ free trade debate to the future of the industry. Specific works include S. J. Chapman, A Reply to the Report of the Tariff Commissionon the Cotton Industry, written for the Free Trade League (1905) [868]. J. Arthur Hutton, The Cottton Crisis (1904) [896] addresses the problems of cotton supply, whilst Fowler and Wyke's Mirth in the Mill: the Gradely Cartoons of Sam Fitton (1995) [881] illustrates that whilst hard, life in the cotton industry was far from humourless.


8. The Long Decline, 1914-1939

World War I and the inter-war years include works by G. W. Daniels [963-969], William Lazonick [1021-1026], Charles Macara [1029-1040], and reports by the Joint Committee of Cotton Trade Organisations [1003-1013]. Noteworthy studies include John Singleton, "The Cotton Industry and the British War Effort, 1914-1918" (1994) [1064] analyses the importance of wartime industry, while Charles Macara, The International Idea in Industry: How Lancashire Has Shown the Way to the World's Peace (1921) [1034] portrays cotton as an paradigm of post-war internationalsation due to bodies such as the International Cotton Federation. The Emergency Cotton Committee, The Crisis in the Cotton Industry (1923) [998] puts the difficulties of the industry into a global perspective. James Lord, The Cotton Spinner's (Bad) Times (1923) [1028] recalls the difficulties of those in the trade in the early depression years, as does Ben Bowker, Lancashire Under the Hammer (1928) [944] which details the industry's descent into depression. Wurm's study, Business, Politics and International Relations: Steel, Cotton and International Cartels in British Politics, 1924-1939 (1993) [1094] places the industry into a comparative framework.

9. End of the Industry, 1940-1980

The final section of the chronolgocial sequence of histories sees increasing numbers of institutional studies, for example those published by the Cotton Board [1113-1132], the International Federation of Cotton and Allied Textile Industries [1160-1165], local groups, e.g. the Textile Industry Support Campaign [1237-1241], regional bodies such as the Lancashire and Merseyside Industrial Development Association [1179-1181] and trade unions - particularly the United Textile Factory Workers' Association [1253-1256]. Historians making a particular study of the post-war period include Carline Miles [1193-1197], Robert Robson [1213-1215] and in recent years, John Singleton [1225- 1230]. The brief period of post war confidence, typified by the Cotton Board's recruitment drive Cotton on the March (1945) [1127] quickly gave way to the years of austerity, during which the cotton industry slipped further into decline. The Lancashire and Merseyside Industrial Development Association, The Decline of the Cotton and Coal Mining Industries of Lancashire (1967) [1180] draws an important parallel between cotton and another ailing staple industry. Two of the best general studies of cotton's post-war decline are Caroline Miles, Lancashire Textiles: A Case Study of Industrial Change (1968) [1194] and John Singleton, Lancashire On the Scrapheap: the Cotton Industry 1945-1970 (1991) [1227]. Singleton's recent chapter, "The Decline of the British Cotton Industry Since 1940" (1996) is an excellent introduction to the period.

Lancashire Cotton and the World

This section reflects cotton's role as one of the first global industries: the literature reflects Lancashire important connections, particularly to the United States and India, but also to Egypt, Africa and the Far East. For the sake of brevity (and availability), we have made no attempt to collect material other than in the English language. The section begins with the European countries, and moves onto the Near and Middle East, the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Far East. General accounts of the American cotton industry include Montgomery, A Practical Detail of the Cotton Manufacture of the United States of America.... (1840) [1301], and Copeland, The Cotton Manufacturing Industry of the United States (1912) [1288]. Prentice, Cotton: With Special Reference to Africa (1972) [1329] provides an insight into the dark continent, while Chao and Chao, The Development of Cotton Textile Production in China (1977) [1334] is a modern survey into the growth of the Chinese industry. There are many studies on India, including John Chapman's early account, The Cotton and Commerce of India (1851) [1343], Gandhi's later history The Indian Cotton Textile Industry (1930) [1353], and Dantwala, A Hundred Years of Indian Cotton (1948) [1351] and a more recent general work, Peter Harnetty, Imperialism and Free Trade: Lancashire and India in the Mid- Nineteenth Century (1972) [1358]. For works on Japan, see Kroese, The Japanese Cotton Industry (1950) [1423] and for an account of the trade antagonism, see Smimizu, Anglo-Japanese Trade Rivalry (1986) [1428].

Company Histories

The development of cotton and textile firms is intricately linked with the growth of many communties throughout the North West. These works are of two main types: the contemporary histories produced by the companies themselves for the purposes of advertising, and later histories which are generally more academic or retrospective in nature. The histories which appear in this section are by no means the only works on cotton firms - many fall under the remit of the main historical studies sequence owing to their general historical or wider business history content. Another valuable source of information is the house journals published by the companies themselves, such as Ashton's ABC Magazine [1435], Bright's House Journal [1443], and the various Platt journals, Platt Bulletin, Platt Newsletter and Platt International News [1516]. Good examples of company histories include Horrockses The Magic Transformation (1936) [1485]and J.W. McConnel, A Century of Fine Cotton Spinning: M'Connel and Co. Ltd., Ancoats, Manchester 1790-1906 (1906) [1499], Hargreaves, Messrs. Hargreaves Calico Print Works at Accrington and Recollections of Broad Oak (1882) [1475] and Muir, The Kenyon Tradition: The History of James Kenyon & Son Ltd., 1664-1964 (1964) [1505].


Working and Social Conditions

General

This section covers a considerable range of social histories and related materials. Standard works include Clarkes The Effects of the Factory System (1899) [1546], Frances Collier, The Family Economy of the Working Classes in the Cotton Industry, 1784-1833 (1965) [1547], Gaskell, The Manufacturing Population of England (1836) [1551] and Kay's The Moral and Physical Condition of the Working Classes Employed in the Cotton Manufacture in Manchester (1832) [1562]. Surveys of later periods include Seddon et al. "Hurrah for a Life in the Factory" (1979) [1577] which covers the pre-World War I period, and Allen Hutt, The Condition of the Working Class in Britain (1933) [1558] - a survey of life in the cotton industry during in the 1930s. Specific topics include G.H. Wood, The History of Wages in the Cotton Industry During the Past Hundred Years (1910) [1583] and Kovacevic, Fact into Fiction: English Literature and the Industrial Scene, 1750-1850 (1975) [1564], a consideration of the important contribution made by literary works to our understanding of working conditions. Some biographical works are included in this section, such as Blackburn's George Tomlinson (1954) [1538], Selley, A Nineteenth Century Lancashire Weaver's Family (1965) [1578] and Howarth, Memories of a Middleton Moonraker (1988) [1557] and Porter, I Trod a Wheelgate (1988) [1571]. Wider accounts of communities can be found in "collective" works such as Mitchell, Lancashire Milltown Memories (1987) [1567]. Works such as Mather's Tackler's Tales (1993) [1566], "Owd Shuttle" Tacklers Yarns [1570] show that the northern sense of humour has many of its roots in the mill (as comedy routines such as Les Dawson's illustrate).

Women

In recent years, there has been a growing interest not only in the basic conditions of women in the cotton, but also in the differentiation of work, wages, and gender roles. The feminist critique of cotton brings a vital new perspective to the study of the industry. A classic general study is Ivy Pinchbeck, Women Workers and the Industrial Revolution (1930) [1600] which includes much about women in the cotton industry; Foley et al., Women in Cotton (1950) [1591] is obviously more specific. Works including Bruley, "Gender, Class and Party" (1993) [1589], and Liddington and Norris, One Hand Tied Behind Us (1978) [1598] focus on political participation and suffrage, while Barton "Women's Wages in the Cotton Trade" (1921) and later Benenson, "The Family Wage and Working Womens' Consciousness in Britain, 1880-1914" (1991) cover the issue of earnings. Gender roles and constraints are covered by Freifeld, "Technical Change and the 'Self-Acting Mule': a Study of Skill and the Sexual Division of Labour" (1986) [1592] and the work of Rose [1601-1603], particularly Limited Livelihoods: Gender and Class in Nineteenth Century England (1992) [1602], a major study of women industry.

Children

Works relating to children in the industry general academic studies, including Bolin-Hort, Work, Family and the State (1989) [1607], Cruickshank, Children and Industry (1981) [1610] and Nardinelli, Child Labor and the Industrial Revolution (1973) [1624]. Biographical studies throw a more personal spotlight on the individual, such as Brown, A Memoir of Robert Blincoe(1832) [1608], Michael Conway, Half Timer (1983) [1609], and Robinson, Esther Price (1994) [1625]. Specific studies on apprenticeship, as in Edmund and Ruth Frow, The Dark Satanic Mills: Child Apprentices in Derbyshire Spinning Factories (1980) [1613] and the role of particular companies in half-time education, as detailed in Hicks, "The Eduation of the Half-Timer: as Shown Particularly in the Case of McConnel and Co. of Manchester" (1939) [1617] are also useful in the consideration of child labour and education in the industry.

Factory Reform

Of the numerous works produced on the factory system and its reform, several have already been mentioned above (Crabtree [1655], Dodd [1658], Martineau [1682], Society for Bettering the Condition and Increasing the Comforts of the Poor [1708]). General studies include Fielden, The Curse of the Factory System (1836) [1664], and Samuel Kydd ("Alfred"), The History of the Factory Movement (1857) [1634] covering 1802-1847. Recent studies include Ward, The Factory System (1970) [1719] and Gray, The Factory Question and Industrial England, 1830-1860 (1996) [1667]. Contemporary writings include those of Anthony Ashley Cooper [1652-1654], Robert Peel [1698- 1699], Michael Sadler [1703-1705] and Richard Oastler [1687-1692]. Particularly useful are the reprinted pamphlets in The Battle for the Ten Hour Day Continues, Four Pamphlets, 1837-1843 (1972) [1640]; part of the same series is Richard Oastler: King of Factory Children. Six Pamphlets, 1836-1861 (1972) [1692]. Histories of the legislation include Plener, The English Factory Legislation (1873), Hutchins and Harrison, A History of Factory Legislation (1926) [1678], and Thomas, The Early Factory Legislation (1948) [1714]. If legislation formed the body of factory reform, the zealous inspection of factories were its teeth. Djang's study Factory Inspection in Great Britain (1942) covers this important component of factory reform. Health and Safety In recent decades, numerous reports and directives on health and safety have been published by the various bodies charged with industrial safety, such as the Industrial Health Research Board, Department of Employment Joint Standing Committee on Health and Welfare in the Cotton and Allied Fibres Industry, Ministry of Labour etc.). Two important studies are Bartrip and Burman, The Wounded Soldiers of Industry (1983) [1722] which deals with compensation policy, and Neild, Byssinosis: the Lancashire Disease (1982), a survey of 'mule spinners' cancer'. Official reports include those of the Health and Safety Executive [1732]-[1738], the Industrial Health Research Board [1740]-[1747] and the Ministry of Labour [1755]-[1760].


Employers' Organisations and Trades Unions

Although often large, powerful bodies, employers' associations have been studied to a lesser extent than trade unions. These federations and associations ranged from the large international organisations (e.g. International Federation of Master Cotton Spinners' and Manufacturers' Associations) to national (for instance, British Textile Employers' Association) and regional/town associations (such as the Bolton Master Cotton Spinners' Association). The main body of material in this section is the International Federation of Master Cotton Spinners' and Manufacturers' Associations cotton congress reports, held from 1904 onwards. The national associations listed are the British Textile Employers' Association [1801]-[1803], the Cotton Spinners' and Manufacturers' Association [1809]-[1822] and the Federation of Master Cotton Spinners' Association [1823]-[1837]. Regional and town associations include the Blackburn Manufacturers' Association [1791]-[1792], Bolton Master Cotton Spinners' Association [1794]-[1799], North Lancashire Master Cotton Spinners' and Manufacturers' Association [1843]- [1845], North Lancashire Textile Employers' Association [1846]-[1847] and the Oldham Master Cotton Spinners' Association [1848]-[1852]. The standard general study is McIvor, Cotton Employers' Organisation and Labour Relations Strategy, 1890-1939 (1982) [1839]. See also Chapman's early article "An Historical Sketch of Masters' Associations in the Cotton Industry" (1901) [1806], and Bullen, "Pragmatism vs. Principle: Cotton Employers and the Origins of the Industrial Relations System" (1988) [1804].

Trades Unions

The section is divided into General Studies and Industrial Disputes. General Studies includes material about, and produced by, various trades unions. Additionally, there is much information available at many of the record offices, special libraries and museums - see Part VI: Archival Collections. The cotton trades union movement as a whole is covered in studies such as Burgess, The Origins of British Industrial Relations (1975) [1860], Jowitt and McIvor, Employers and Labour in the English Textile Industries, 1850-1939 (1988) [1877], Turner, Trade Union Growth: Structure and Policy: A Comparative Study of Cotton Unions in England (1962) [1889]. The weaving unions are discussed in Gray, The Weaver's Wage (1937) [1875]. The finishing trades are surveyed in McIvor, "Work, Wages and Industrial Relations in Cotton Finishing, 1880-1914" (1988) [1879]. A general regional survey is Fowler, "Lancashire Cotton Unionism in the Inter-War Years" (1988) [1868]. Spinning unions: these include studies of the Amalgamated Association of Operative Cotton Spinners, in Fowler and Wyke in The Barefoot Aristocrats (1987) [1872], while an earlier sketch of another spinning union is Williamson, The Hyde and District Operative Cotton Spinners' Association (1929) [1896]. There are other short works on unions such as the Friendly Associated Cotton Spinners [1873], Oldham Operative Spinners and Cotton Provincial Association [1853], [1856] and the Operative Spinners of England [1883]. Carding unions: see Bullen and Fowler's The Cardroom Workers Union (1986) [1859], which is one of the few major studies of a carding union. Weaving unions: There are several substantial studies of the weaving unions, including Hopwood, A History of the Lancashire Cotton Industry (1969) [1876], on the Amalgamated Weavers' Association, Fowler and Fowler, The History of the Nelson Weavers' Association (1984) [1871], Bullen, The Lancashire Weavers' Union, a Commemorative History (1984) [1858]. Shorter histories include the Bolton District Weavers and Winders Association's Centenary, 1865-1965 (1965) [1857]. Industrial Disputes covers specific strikes, disputes and other disturbances from the Eighteenth Century onwards. See: the Manchester Checkmakers' dispute, 1759 [1923], the Lancashire Cotton Riots, 1769-79 [1913], the Westhoughton Riots, 1812 [1905], the Manchester Weavers' riot, 1808 [1908]-[1909], the 1831 riot at Sunnyside Calico Printing Works, Accrington [1900] and the Preston strikes of 1836-37 [1897]-[1898] and 1853-54 [1902], [1904], [1917]. See also Padiham Weavers' Strike, 1859 [1914], Colne Strike, 1860-61 [1928], the Melrose Mill Strike, Oldham, 1890 [1921] and the Automatic Loom Strike, Hyde, 1908 [1906].

Industrial Archaeology

The final section of the historical studies considers the physical legacy of the cotton industry, its buildings, machinery, housing and other archaeological artefacts which have been accumulated over three centuries of the industry in the North West. The study of cotton's industrial archaeology has been rather sporadic, but in recent years a sizeable literature has been built up. The North West owes much to individuals such as Owen Ashmore, Michael Rothwell, Geoffrey Timmins, Michael Williams, Chris Aspin and T.C. Dickinson, and many regional organisations, for example, the Northern Mill Engine Society, the Arkwright Society, the Ellenroad Trust, as well as local history societies (for instance the Hyndburn Local History Society, Burnley and District Historical Society) and special academic projects such as the Greater Manchester Arcaeological Unit and the Centre for North West Regional Studies. The culmination of these and similar efforts, both in the North West and across the country, was the establishment of the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (see Williams, [1998]), which is a recognition of the importance of preserving our dwindling links with the past. General works on industrial archaeology in the North West include Ashmore, The Industrial Archaeology of Lancashire (1969) [1930] and The Industrial Archaeology of the North West (1982) [1930]. Jones, Industrial Architecture in Britain, 1750-1939 (1986) [1965] is a general study of industrial buildings, including cotton mills. Specific studies on mills include Binney, Satanic Mills (1978) [1934], while Fitzgerald "The Development of the Cast Iron Frame in Textile Mills to 1850" (1987) [1944] focuses on an important feature of mill construction. Williams and Farnie, Cotton Mills in Greater Manchester (1992) [2001] is a major study jointly undertaken by the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England and the Greater Manchester Archaeological Unit. A good introduction to Lancashire's cotton buildings is Aspin, "Cotton's Legacy" (1996) [1932], while Giles, Yorkshire Textile Mills (1992) [1950] and Calladine and Fricker, East Cheshire Textile Mills (1993) [1936] are also good county guides. Working-class housing/workshops are covered by Chapman, "Workers' Housing in the Cotton Factory Colonies, 1770-1850" (1976) [1938], Taylor, "A Type of Handloom-Weaving Cottage in Mid-Lancashire" (1966) [1989] and Timmins, Handloom Weavers' Cottages in Central Lancashire (1977) [1992]. An important component of Cottonopolis is discussed by Wilkinson in Manchester Warehouses: Their History and Architecture (1982) [1996]. Studies on specific areas in this section include: Accrington [1974]; Bacup [1990]; Blackburn [1975], [1994], Bolton [1969]- [1970], [1999]; Burnley [1946]; Bury [1945], [1981]; Cromford [1937]; Cumbria [1967], [1995]; Helmshore [1948], [1971]; Manchester [1939], [1940], [1943], [2000], [2001]; New Mills [1987]; Oswaldtwistle [1976]; Rochdale [1951]; Royton [1940]; Stockport [1958]; Stalybridge [1985]-[1986], and Styal [1968] [1978].

PART III: TECHNICAL WORKS

Technical works are an important part of many library collections throughout the North West. Not only are they useful from a technological point of view, but they also contain a great deal of historical information: they are therefore vital contemporary sources, which in many cases were still used as practical working guides up to the inter- war years. Historians have yet to fully utilise much of this vast, largely untapped literature. As well as disseminating a great deal of essential technical information throughout the industry, these works also provide considerable evidence of the increasingly sophisticated technical education within the industry, which counters one of the arguments with regard to the decline of the industry that there was insufficient technical and educational information to keep the industry abreat of developments. It also throws doubt on the contemporary assertions that the labour force which toiled at the mule gate and weaving shed were technically ignorant machine-sitters. Indeed, such was the popularity of these works, that local publishers (such as John and Abel Heywood, the Textile Mercury and Textile Manufacturer) established their own dedicated series of technical studies. Many historians (e.g., Mass, Sandberg, Lazonick) have recognised the importance of appreciating the role that technical processes and innovations played in the development of the industry. For the ease of use, we have divided these works into six sections: Dictionaries, General Studies and the four main sections each relating to the major stages of cotton production: The Cotton Fibre and Its Preparation, Spinning Processes, Weaving Processes and Finishing Processes. Although there are numerous sub-processes involved in each of these four stages, we felt it important not to fragment these sections to the point where they became unuseable. Within these sub-processes even minor changes to machine design or working practice could alter the productivity of the industry. These processes and their attendant trades were also inter-dependent to a great degree. For example, Arkwright demonstrated that there was little point in inventing the water frame without the complementary invention of the carding machine. During our original research, we inspected a large number of sales and technical catalogues relating to individual machines produced by local machine makers (Platt Bros, Nasmith, etc.) which in the final analysis we decided were rather too ephemeral to list. These references still exist as part of the larger database at NWRLS, and any reader interested in this most fascinating technological minutae is welcome to contact the authors for further information.


Dictionaries

One of the best general technical glossaries is Hough, Encyclopedia of Cotton Fabrics (1921-54) [2013], while the more comprehensive guides include Curtis's early volume, Glossary of Textile Terms (1921) [2009]. Perhaps the best modern work is the Textile Institute, Textile Terms and Definitions (1954-) [2024]. More specific are Blackshaw and Brightman, Dictionary of Dyeing and Textile Printing (1961) [2004] which concentrates on finishing processes, and Pritchard, A Short Dictionary of Weaving (1954) [2020].


General Studies

These are either comprehensive "multi-process" works such as Hall, The Standard Handbook of Textiles (1946-75) [2056] or general studies, for example the excellent R. J. Peake, Cotton: from the Raw Material to the Finished Product (1910-34) [2102]. General guides to the industry and its processes are at [2031]-[2032], [2034]-[2036], [2041]-[2044], [2046]-[2047], [2050]-[2052], [2054]-[2056], [2065], [2069]-[2070], [2072]-[2077], [2079]-[2084], [2086], [2089]-[2096], [2098], [2102]-[2104], [2106], [2108]-[2113], [2119], [2129]-[2131], [2135]-[2140]. Works on cotton/textile calculations can be found at [2026], [2029], [2032], [2071], [2078], [2105], [2107], [2117], [2120], [2124] and [2128]. Textile testing manuals are at [2028], [2045], [2053], [2064], [2085] and [2087]. For calico printing, see Brooks, How Calico is Made (1891) [2030]. Textile engineering studies include Nissan, Textile Engineering Processes (1959) [2100]. For machinery and machine construction see [2027], [2057]-[2059], [2067], [2116], [2121] and [2123]. Cotton waste processes are described in Thornley, Cotton Waste (1912) [2132]. Mills and mill management include works by Nasmith, Recent Cotton Mill Construction and Engineering (1909) [2099] and Taggart, Cotton Mill Management (1923) [2122]: see also [2049, [2088], [2099], [2101] and [2127]. Costing and other business studies are Hardman [2060], Heylin [2066] (cotton costing), Hirsh [2068] (textile economics), Moss [2097] (accounting), Taylor [2125] (contracts) and Todd [2133]-[2134] (marketing and markets).

The Cotton Fibre and its Preparation

Perhaps the best general introduction to the cotton fibre and its subsequent treatment is Volume 1 of the Textile Institute Manual of Cotton Spinning: Coulson, Raw Cotton Production and Marketing (1954) [2167], but see also the I.F.M.C.S.M.A. volume, What is a Cotton Bale? (1937) [2160]. The biology and properties of the cotton fibre are dealt with in Volume 2 (Part 1) of the Textile Institute Manual of Cotton Spinning: Hunter and Shrigley, The Characteristics of Raw Cotton (1961) [2168]: see also [2141], [2145], [2147], [2155], [2158], [2159], [2161]- [2164], [2171] and [2173]. Testing is dealt with by W. L. Balls [2142]-[2144], for studies on opening and treatment, see Butterworth [2148] and Hill [2156]. Ginning is discussed by Dobson [2150].

Spinning Processes

Key studies on spinning are those of Thomas Thornley [2244]-[2256], William Scott Taggart [2236]-[2239], Joseph Nasmith [2220]-[2221], Prestwich [2229]-[2231] and earlier names such as Leigh [2209] and Montgomery [2216]. Classic early manuals include Etchells, The Cotton Spinner's Assistant (1820) [2195], Leigh, Practical Cotton Spinner and Manager's Assistant (1866) [2209] and Montgomery, The Carding and Spinning Master's Assistant (1832) [2216]. Later works include Nasmith, The Student's Cotton Spinning (1892) [2220] and the classic technical manuals Taggart, Cotton Spinning (1896-1928) [2236] and Thornley, Cotton Spinning (1901-27) [2246]-[2248].

Weaving Processes

Experts on the weaving processes include Thomas Ashenhurst [2269]-[2270], C.P. Brooks [2281]-[2284], James Holmes [2308]-[2313], Wilfred Middlebrook [2326]-[2332], Harry Nisbet [2338]-[2340], Emmanuel Posselt [2342]- [2345] and John Taylor [2356]. Early works include Butterworth, A Guide to Universal Manufacture (1801) [2287] and Murphy, A Treatise on the Art of Weaving (1827-50) [2334]. For later texts see Brooks, Cotton Manufacturing (1888-92) [2281], Holmes, Calculations in Cotton Weaving (1897-1907) [2308] , Nisbet, Preliminary Operations of Weaving (1914-24) [2338]-[2339] and Middlebrook, Essential Points in Weaving Practice (1947) [2326].

Finishing Processes

Texts in finishing processes include early texts, for example Des Charmes, The Art of Bleaching Piece-Goods, Cottons and Threads... (1799) [2388]. Later works include Crace-Calvert, Dyeing and Calico Printing (1876-78) [2384], Sansone, The Printing of Cotton Fabrics (1887-1901) [2423], Bean and McCleary, The Chemistry and Practice of Finishing (1905-26) [2378] and Knecht and Fothergill, The Principles and Practice of Textile Printing (1912) [2404]. Trotman and Thorpe, the Principles of Bleaching and Finishing of Cotton (1911-27) [2428] is standard study of bleaching. Watson, Textile Design and Colour (1921-54) [2431] and Marsh, Introduction to Textile Finishing (1951) [2407] are relatively recent works.

PART IV: PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS AND GOVERNMENT PUBLICATIONS

We have organised parliamentary papers into Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Papers. Within these sections, we have broadly defined key areas such as cotton factories, the Cotton Famine, finishing, supply and the trade in general, as well as papers covering the decline of handloom weaving. The sections are sub-divided into Accounts and Papers, Bills and Reports. Again, we hope this will make the reader's task a little less complicated. While certain types of parliamentary papers have been widely used, for example select committee papers on factory conditions, other papers have not. We hope that this section will go some way to make the reader aware of the wide range of official papers published on the cotton industry. In the preparation of this section, we have made extensive use of the H.M.S.O. indexes and publications, as well as the superb Irish University Press series of indexes. In certain cases we have identified the IUP volume as well as the original parliamentary number: these reprints may be more readily available. Such is the difficulty in locating individual parliamentary papers that we have not identified separate locations for these items. In the North West, Manchester Public Libraries and John Rylands University Library of Manchester hold comprehensive collections of original parliamentary publications. Other libraries contain incomplete runs, as well as holding the Chadwick-Healey microfiche editions. The subject index has a comprehensive section on parliamentary papers, with a separate listing of all the specific acts, bills, schemes and programmes appearing in this section.


PART V: ACADEMIC STUDIES

Theses and Dissertations

Although not widely available, such is the quality of historical work contained in the various theses and dissertations that we considered them an important source of information. The initial listing was prepared by scouring the ASLIB Guide to Theses and also the returns we received from our research survey from libraries around the region. The works listed here are mostly higher degrees (M.A., M. Litt, M.Phil., M.Sc., Ph.D., D.Phil etc.), and we have made no attempt to record undergraduate theses. Likewise, we have focussed our attention primarily on historical studies, and although we inspected many fine technical doctorates - mostly at the Textile Institute Library - we felt that they fell outside the remit of this work. In most cases, application to view these theses should be made directly to the awarding university.


PART VI: ARCHIVAL COLLECTIONS

The final part of the bibliography is a summary guide to the extensive archival collections held in the record offices, public libraries, special libraries and museums around the North West, as well as collections held outside the region such as those at the Public Record Office, Leeds University. An important proviso is that this section is not intended to be an exhaustive listing to every document which has a bearing on the cotton industry: our research time was finite, and although we were as thorough as our research programme allowed, we barely scratched the surface of some of the unmarked or undifferentiated holdings which we encountered. However, we feel that the resulting section is a valuable guide to the region's cotton archives. It is important to remember that these collections are constantly evolving: deposits are constantly added to archival holdings, and the process of rescuing and preserving manuscripts of recent cotton industry remains an important area to which our colleagues across the region contribute.

The public libraries and combined library and archives services listed are: Blackburn Central Library, Bolton Archive and Local Studies Service, Bury Reference Library, Chesterfield Local Studies Library, Derby Local Studies Library, Lancashire County Library, Liverpool Libraries, Manchester Public Libraries, Manx National Heritage, Oldham Local Studies Library and Archives Service, Rochdale Local Studies Library, Stockport Local Heritage Library and the Tameside Local Studies Library. Academic library collections can be found at John Rylands University Library of Manchester, Leeds University Brotherton Library, Manchester Metropolitan University, and Salford University. The main archival collections on the industry are located at record offices around the region, namely Bury Archives Centre, Cheshire Record Office, Cumbria Record Office, Derbyshire Record Office, Greater Manchester County Record Office, Lancashire Record Office, Public Record Office, Salford Archives Centre and the West Yorkshire Archive Service. Museums listed are: the Hall i'th Wood Museum, Bolton; Helmshore Textile Museums, Lewis Textile Museum, Blackburn; the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester; Oldham Museum; Quarry Bank Mill, Styal; Queen Street Museum, Burnley; Rossendale Museum; Saddleworth Museum; Towneley Hall, Burnley; and the Weavers' Triangle Visitor Centre, Burnley. Special archives and libraries are the Greater Manchester Archaeological Unit, the North West Film Archive at the Manchester Metropolitan University, the Textile Institute library, Manchester and the Working Class Movement Library, Salford.


CONCLUSION

This bibliography is intended to be a first port of call for all students, librarians, archivists and academics with an interest in the cotton industry. As closer examination will reveal, although cotton is one of the most extensively discussed and widely researched industries, much remains to be discovered. We hope that this volume goes some way towards facilitating future study of this most important of industries.


Acknowledgements

During our research, we have received much help from academic and library colleagues across the North West region. We would like to thank Douglas Farnie and Alan Fowler for their generous support and advice throughout the period of our research. Thanks go to all the Executive Committee and Staff of the North Western Regional Library System for their help and support. In particular, the volumes produced in the past five years owe their existence to the determination and dedication of Joan Unsworth, who retired last year as Company Secretary. Her successor, Deborah Ryan, has been similarly supportive of our endeavours. Of course, the bibliography could not have been produced at all without the unstinting help and guidance of the numerous librarians, archivists and curators who submitted details of their holdings and arranged for us to visit their collections. We are therefore grateful to the following archivists and librarians in the North West and neighbouring authorities: Barry Mills (Bolton Archives and Local Studies Service); Kevin Mulley (Bury Archives Service); Alan Boughey (Bury Reference Library); Jonathan Pepler and Mike Eddison (Cheshire Record Office); Simon Harrison (Chester Record Office); Jim Grisenthwaite (Cumbria Record Office); Jean Radford (Derby Local Studies Library); Vincent McKernan (Greater Manchester County Record Office); Anita Addiman and Judith Swarbrick (Lancashire County Library: Local Studies Library); Tony Ashcroft (Leigh Local Studies Library); Mrs. K. Parrott ( Liverpool Libraries and Information Services); Richard Bond, Dora Rayson, David Taylor and Steve Willis (Manchester Public Libraries: Local Studies Unit); Wendy Thirkettle (Manx National Heritage); Terry Berry and Paul Sillitoe (Oldham Local Studies Library/Archives); Eleanor Linwood (Public Record Office); Pam Godman (Rochdale Local Studies Library); Andrew Cross (Salford Archives Centre); Tim Ashworth (Salford Local History Library); Alice Lock (Tameside Local Studies Library); A. J. Jamieson and Pat Sewell (West Yorkshire Archive Service) and Margaret Walsh (Westhoughton Library). Our colleagues in academic libraries were equally helpful, in particular Peter McNiven (John Rylands University Library of Manchester); Caroline Young (Brotherton Library, Leeds University); Adrian Allan (Liverpool University Archives); Shane Swaffield (Manchester Metropolitan University) and John Percy (Salford University Archives). Additionally, Mrs. Judith White of Stepping Hill Library offered advice and material on byssinosis. Alain Kahan of the Working Class Movement Library, Salford, guided us through the materials amassed by Ruth and the late Eddie Frow. Paul Daniels and the Staff of the Textile Institute Library allowed us free access to their collection of books and theses on the textile industry. Michael Powell supplied lists of the holdings of Chethams Library. Robina McNeil of the Greater Manchester Archaeological Unit provided information relating to the North West's mills and industrial archaeology. Jenny Hammerton added a visual dimension by sending details of North West Film Archive's holdings. Don Paterson of the North West Mills Group was most helpful in pointing out several useful items. The curatorial staff of the regional museums were most helpful in helping us to assess their collections. Maggy Sims and Adrian Lewis of the Blackburn Museum (and the adjacent Lewis Textile Museum) made us welcome on several occasions. Adam Daber of the Quarry Bank Mill Archives, Styal, was kind enough to let us loose on the wealth of material stored there. Brian Hall of the Weavers' Triangle Visitor Centre, opened (and heated) the centre specially and supplied welcome cups of tea on a cold winter's day. We were also assisted by: Mr. B. Kilner (Colne Valley Museum); Mr. I.A. Gibson (Helmshore Textile Museums); Louanne Collins (Macclesfield Museums Trust); Tim Corum (Oldham Museum); Sandra Cruise (Rossendale Museum); Maurice Dennett (Saddleworth Museum) and Michael Townend (Towneley Hall, Burnley.) Whatever merits this volume may have are largely due to the contribution of those mentioned above. Any errors and omissions are, of course, entirely the fault of the editors.
