The Rise & Fall Of The

Sewing Machine kings

Before the sewing machine industry got off the ground, in the middle of the 19th Century, there was a huge problem, one that would stifle, not only competition, but the birth of true mass production in America.

During the 1850's sewing machine manufacture was crippled by a handful of extraordinary characters battling in court for their patent rights. These men, who created the largest fight in American legal history, became known by the periodicals of the day as the Sewing Machine Kings. They were engaged in the Great Sewing Machine Wars, using any tactics to win. They also created an illegal cartel or combination that was eventually brought down.

Here, for the first time, is their remarkable story and their even more remarkable solution.

       "This may just be the best book I've ever read."

"My five grandchildren are reading this book aloud to each other from my Kindle every Sunday.
The characterization is great; both heart-warming and funny, and the story never lags.
 I enjoyed not only the story, but watching my grandchildren's delight in hearing it.
 The illustrations are the best I've seen in a very long time.
Anne Lancaster USA


 If this isn't the perfect book it's close to it!
I'm on my third run though already.
 Love it, love it, love it.
F. Watson USA

The way it's written you can just imagine walking beside him seeing the things he does.
Definitely look forward to reading more of his adventures.
Amazon FIVE STAR review
