SOLD Pockets Of History *£12 €18 $35 Including Shipping

Published in 2006 for the beginning of the exhibition of embroidered pockets at the Museum of Costume in Bath, this very attractively produced and illustrated book is much more than a catalogue of the exhibition.
It is a comprehensive history of the pocket and examines its personal, social and economic place in history.
This 40 page book is in excellent condition. It is card-backed with double fold out end pages permitting the inclusion of the 1849 tale of Grandmamma's Pockets by Mrs SC Hall.
