This fascinating text details the evolution of leatherwork throughout the ages, comparing the leatherworking of the past to that of today in a fascinating and engaging manner. Leather is a great book sure to appeal to those with an interest in the history of leather, and is well deserving a place in any collection of antiquarian leatherworking literature.
