Awhile ago someone posted a link to Amazon for a shoe making book. I couldn't find the post and was wondering if someone could post the link again.

I don't suppose anyone is interested in this volume in French....My parents gave me the French version for Christmas, not knowing that I have the English lanaguage edition already.

jerrysfriend has a book on the history of fine shoemaking that is a very interesting read, pm him and i am quite sure he will refer the title, it looks back on all of the grea shoemakers like lobb, eg, and the history of the styling etc., i found it quite well written abd a fun flash into the past

Wow, I would love to get a copy of that book. Do you know the title and/or author?

We talked about it last night, and we forgot to write the name down. I will email him this morning and ask him and pass it on as soon as I hear back.

These are links to Roetzel's book.  Is this what you had in mind when you mentioned a shoe book earlier?

It may be, I only know the book from the cover, Ken brought it in for me to read and I found it fascinating, especially the look back through the ages of the inseption of the shoes from the victorian ages etc.

No, that' doesn't sound like Roetzel's book, which is what you linked. Must be something else.

Ken, care to weigh in here? If there is a shoemaking book such as nightowl6261a has described, I would love to know the title and/or author so that I can search the used book websites for it. (I assume that whatever it is, it is out of print.)
