Stuart Press.
This book is slightly different to the other books on particular garments in that it does not try to enable the reader to reconstruct footwear. That is a far more specialised topic and would require a very different book.
What it is intended to do is provide an idea of the nature of common people’s footwear throughout the period to enable those readers who require such footwear to order exactly what they should have from the small number of highly skilled and experienced reproduction footwear manufacturers operating in England and North America.
