Item description for Purses in Pieces: Archaeological Finds of Late Medieval and 16th-century Leather Purses, Pouches, Bags and Cases in the Netherlands by Olaf Goubitz, Carol Van Driel-Murray & Willy Groenman-Van Waateringe...

This study of 120 pages is a bible of leather holders, especially money holders. Every purse that has been found in an archaeological context in the Netherlands is published in this book. All the techniques are discussed and many iconographical references are presented. Because leather objects from this period do not varie very much in North Western Europe and North America, you will find what you need to know about all the different manifestations of purses.

Reviews - What do customers think about Purses in Pieces: Archaeological Finds of Late Medieval and 16th-century Leather Purses, Pouches, Bags and Cases in the Netherlands?

An excellent resource  Jun 9, 2008
This is a wonderful resource for persons who study late medieval material culture, who participate in living history, and for leather-workers interested in the history of their craft.

Detailed, well-structured, and very informative; I highly recommend it.
 
must read for medieval reproductions leatherworker   May 12, 2008
If your interested in making medieval purses and pouches this book will provide line drawings for about any type of purse or pouch. It also provides other pieces such as needle cases and leather covered bottles.
 
The seminal book on period leather purses  Jan 23, 2008
This book is truly a treasure trove of late medieval and 16th Century Leather Purses from The Netherlands. Many of the purses are quite complex. Having made several of these purses in the last thirteen years I am quite familiar with the construction methods and assembly of these types of purses. Olaf's own illustrations make the details come alive. His descriptions are very easy to follow. He made several reconstructions of the purses which very closely resemble the originals. I have been a leather crafter for nearly twenty years and have quite an assemblage of books from early times to current and none of them remotely address this much neglected subject as is dealt with in this book. This book should be required reading for leather conservators, museum curators and archaeologists. I pre-ordered the book based solely on the pdf and I can tell you that I was not disappointed with the rest of the book!
I also own Olaf's previous work - a seminal work on footwear called "Stepping Through Time" - which was a collaborive work with Carol van Driel-Murray and Willy Groenman-van Waateringe. At the time of his death in 2007 Olaf was preparing another work - this time knife sheaths and scabbards - one can only hope that the publishers of Olaf's work will see their way to publishing Olaf's final work.
