SUMMARY of THE PRINCIPAL CHINESE TREATISES UPON THE CULTURE OF THE MULBERRY AND THE REARING OF SILK WORMS. Originally published in 1838. Many of the earliest books on subjects within textiles, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

On Bathing the Eggs of Silk Worms. Food for the Silk Worms. Distribution and Transportation. Enterance into Cocoon Rooms. Harvesting Cocoons.
