Excerpt from The History of the Woollen and Worsted Industries

"To trace the origin and progress (of manufactures) with the causes of that progress, is more worthy the pains of the student than to make himself acquainted with the annals of wars and dynasties, or with nineteen-twentieths of the matters which fill the pages of history."

Baines: History of the Cotton Manufacture (1835).

This Series of The Histories of English Industries has been designed to meet the needs of Training Colleges, Continuation Schools, Workers' Tutorial Classes, and all similar institutions in whose curriculum the serious study of Industrial History is given its proper place. The object of the Series is not to provide a technical account of the processes of industry, although mechanical developments will be described, as far as possible, in a non-technical manner. Its purpose is rather to indicate the place which each industry has in the national economy, and to trace its growth and development as part of the general economic life of the community. In particular the human side of the industry, the lives of the workers engaged in it, and the achievements of inventors, will be treated with as much fullness of detail as the nature of the evidence available and the limitations of space will permit.

It will probably be generally admitted that a knowledge of Industrial History has now become indispensable for every citizen who aspires to understand, and to participate in the solution of, the social and economic problems of his generation. For those actually engaged in any industry a knowledge of its history is a vital necessity.
