Uppers, Leather and Findings is a vintage catalogue of shoe and boot parts and accessories published by New York shoe manufacturer Michael Arthur. Also including some short anecdotes, jokes, and even poetry, this illustrated little volume will appeal to those with an interest in historical footwear, and it would make for a charming addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Postal Law", "Stand From Under Uppers Reduced", "Bottom Figures", "Gent's Gaiter Uppers", "Buckle and Lace Shoes", "Extra Quality Gaiters", "Tight Boots", "Boy's Work", "Boot Legs", "Ladies French Glazed Kid", "Her Sanguine Temperament", "How They Waltz in Put-in-Bay", "Paddy Shannon", "Proper Way of Ordering Custom Uppers", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on history of shoemaking.
