Ca. 1930 album of large swatches of Scottish tartan cloths for kilts, etc.

Housed in a repurposed cloth binder that originally was a printed journal for a St. Barnabas Menin Gate pilgrimage of 1927 with all contents but the endpapers removed, housing 22 original samples, each uniquely different, of woolen tartan cloth for kilts and trews, each with a stapled typed note identifying the kind of tartan: Black watch trews, MacBeth tartan, Buchanan tartan, Douglas tartan -- Cameronians, Stuart tartan, etc. etc. One of the endpapers has a mounted newspaper clipping from 1930 and there are some other notes in pencil, plus some typed notes on various tartan cloth types also on one of the endpapers. We assume the swatches, which measure anywhere from 6 x 4 inches to 9 x 9 inches, are from around 1930, too. Good. Item #H18079
