    Copy 1 of Alison Knowles' Gem Duck (1977), an art book replete with references to shoe construction and materials, is apparently for sale on eBay. The title alludes to the canvas ribbing affixed to the insoles of many welted shoes that has been a source of controversy (and learning) in online forums. It is not my intent to reignite that discussion. But the book may be a desideratum for someone even if "gem duck" is not.
