The experienced leather craft and glover artesians of the early 1900's clamoured for this type of item and with good reason! (Original is NOT for sale)
This HISTORIC item contains an UNABRIDGED 120 PAGES includes a historic outline, photos, illustrations, written guidence instructions and fundamentals for creating the extremely handsome leatherwork items of an earlier, and more perfectionistic, arts and crafts era!
There is much expert craftsman guidance provided for the many differing types of gloves displayed in the listing collage for your referencing and leather craft recreationist pleasure!
This CD's contents may be an ideal reference or guide book for those interested in recreationist avenues and groups, such as, black powder, mountain man, Victorian, Edwardian, Civil War, Society for Creative Anacronism and more!
You will also find historical facts on this ancient craft (from which leathers are best to use for each project to how to wash a completed pair of gloves!) as well as various RARE and UNIQUE guidelines to assist you along the way to recreating the handsome and practical leather items of a earlier classy and gentile society!
These culturally historic instructions are characteristic of the fancy work done by our ancestors during the earlier Victorian and Edwardian eras! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft book revealing our heritage from early America and Europe!
''The present book has been prepared in response to a demand for something fuller and more completely illustrated than the two smaller handbooks previously printed in my name. My one great object has been to help my fellow workers to make gloves which will prove a pleasure when finished. Knowing that this result could only be attained by scientific patterns, I have not rested satisfied with general appreciation alone, but have had the satisfaction of seeing my pupils turning out gloves which vied with those of the highest professional standard. I venture to think this result is confirmed by the illustrations of the gloves they have made.''
(All gloves displayed in this item's plates were produced by her students utilizing the author's methods meticulously presented in the original book, and hence, in this unabridged CD REPRODUCTION of said book.)
