This book is a very good resource for the study of 18th century fabric design, especially of English (Spitalfields) silks. The introduction outlines the change of tastes through the century, two chapters give backround information on the formation of the design collection at the V&A and the biographies of the designers, and the rest is just plates, plates, plates. 'The Victoria and Albert Museum in London contains the most important and collection of these silk designs in the world. Wonderful plates! Not just pictures of fabrics, mind you, but of the original watercolours. Hardback Original in slipcase. Out of print
