Blues and Carmine of Indigo is a practical guide written by Felicien Capron De Dole in 1863. The book serves as a comprehensive treatise on the fabrication of every commercial product derived from Indigo. Indigo is a natural dye that has been used for centuries to color textiles, but it was not until the 19th century that its commercial production became widespread. The book covers various aspects of Indigo fabrication, including the cultivation and harvesting of Indigo plants, the extraction of Indigo pigment, and the chemical processes involved in transforming Indigo into various commercial products. The book also provides detailed instructions on how to dye different types of fabrics using Indigo. Blues and Carmine of Indigo is a valuable resource for textile manufacturers, dyeing professionals, and anyone interested in the history and science of Indigo dyeing.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
