Title

Venetian blinds : a survey of the foundation and development of the Venetian blind, its uses, advantages and applications, together with the modern modus operandi of manufacture and selling

Date

1941

Description

"Venetian blinds have enjoyed a revival in popularity during recent years and there has been a considerable improvement in their design and much development in their efficient manufacture. There has also been a wider field of application and increased adaptation for both domestic and business establishments, particularly in the use of attractive colour harmonies. Having realized for some time that a text book, or manual of up-to-date practice was overdue, we decided, as one of the oldest of established component manufacturers, to produce such a manual ourselves. We also strived, in spite of increased costs of production, to ensure that the book is sold at a nominal price, within the reach of all likely to be interested. This book is the result of two years of intensive work, and will, we hope, satisfy a long-felt, if unexpressed, need. Further editions will be produced as and when required and comments and suggestions for its improvement will be welcomed." -- Foreword, by Roger French, managing director, Thomas French & Sons Limited.
