OMG – The Bateman Weaving Patterns!

Just got a good look at a copy of Weaving Innovations from the Bateman Collection. Wow!  This guy Bateman was a chemist who began weaving in the mid-1900s — on an 8-harness table loom. Because he had such an analytical mind, he did something like 1,500 samples comparing changes in tie up, threading, and treading.  Very detailed work.  I’m hoping to try to weave through some of his samples–someday–in all my free time. (I’m still working so free-time is relatively scarce.)
