Description

Inside cover showing repairs made with an old medieval parchment. From the first of three dyebooks ranging from the mid 18th to early 19th century. This book gives a sample of dyed wool and in most cases provide the recipe as well. The colours are well preserved and therefore show the sorts of colours of the clothing worn at the time. Presented by Captain Arthur Batten-Pool V.C. M.C. of Rode Manor, December 1953
