The art of Boot and Shoemaking

This file is a true gem, saved by Google Books.
To prevent knowledge getting lost, they scanned this book and make it available for everyone that likes to learn more about making their own boots or shoes.
In short, it will not just tell you a lot more about the history of footwear, but it'll teach you how to make the boots or shoes actually fit on the person you're making it for, how to draw the pieces out on a buckskin, cut the pieces, and sow everything together to make one pari of perfectly fitting boots or shoes, which ever you decided to create.
I'm sure some of you will say it's easier to make moccasins and go that route, but to anyone else, even experienced shoemakers, this is a piece of valuable history and information that everyone should know.
