From Wool to Cloth. The Triumph of the Suffolk Clothier.
Bungay: RefineCatch Limited, 2016. 0995508507. 1st edition."Using sources previously untapped by textile historians, Dr Amor explains the growth of Suffolk's woollen cloth industry in the late Middle Ages. For a short period the hundreds of Babergh and Cosford, in the south of the county, were among the most intensively industrialised regions in all Europe. The great churches at Hadleigh, Lavenham and Long Melford bear witness to the wealth created. But cloth was also made in many other parts of Suffolk..This is history from the bottom up, told through the lives of men and women who made the cloth - card-makers, spinsters, weavers, fullers, dyers, shearmen and clothiers." Pp.xx/ 282, signed by the author to title page, 24 black & white plates + figure illustrations, tables and maps. Black illustrated laminated boards. VG.
