Excerpt from The Dyeing of Cotton and Other Vegetable Fibres: With the Dyestuffs of Leopold Cassella Co; Frankfort O. M In our book, The Diamine Colours, issued in 1896, we gave the most comprehensive information with regard to the application of our Diamine Colours. The value of this work has been appreciated by all parties interested in dyeing, and it has become typical for later publications. From time to time we have issued supplements to that book in accordance with the steady development of the Diamine Colours. Of late, however, the field of direct dyeing colouring matters has been extended in a most extraordinary degree by the introduction of our Immedial Colours, and cotton dyeing generally having made essential progress through the application of numerous new processes, we have decided to abstain from publishing a revised edition of the first book, and have instead prepared for our customers and friends the present manual, which embraces all departments and branches of modern cotton dyeing. The tables in this book have been compiled with the greatest precision, and give a very clear description of the properties of the dyestuffs. The statements made with regard to the degrees of fastness are based on researches carried out with all possible accuracy, and the methods given for dyeing cotton in its various stages of manufacture (loose cotton, sliver, yarn, warps, pieces and hosiery goods) are throughout obtained by practical experience. The application of mechanical apparatus, which has of late proved of such great importance for the dyeing of cotton and cotton goods, is described in its essential points.
