About this work:

Werner von Bergen, renown author/editor of the Wool Handbook (six volumes), also co-authored a small volume of fiber photomicrographs with microscopist Walter Krauss in 1942. This volume, the Textile Fiber Atlas: A Collection of Photomicrographs of Common Textile Fibers, has provided generations of textile students with definitive images of fibers at high magnification, along with careful directions and precise notes. It is an indispensable aid in properly identifying textile objects.

The Textile Fiber Atlas… has been out of print for some time but it remains popular among ethnobotanists, textile conservators, microscopists, anthropologists, and archaeologists in photocopy form. Though modern techniques of photomicrography now permit color and scanning electron micrographic images, the Textile Fiber Atlas remains a classic reference in textiles research.
