1.0 out of 5 stars NOT a practical handbook

This review is from: The Art of Boot and Shoemaking: A Practical Handbook Including Measurement, Last-Fitting, Cutting-Out, Closing, and Making (Paperback)
this is a reprint of a book from 1865! I wasn't expecting a modern step by step guide but there is no real useable information on shoemaking techniques except possibly the last measuring. The original title of the book is now highly misleading.

I found its old fashioned discussive style waffley and short on detail, technical terms are used but not explained, mildly interesting & charming as a historical artefact.

Have made my own primitive sandals and was looking for some technique ideas that could be used to to make simple shoes, nothing here for me unfortunately.
