SOLD The Flemish Bond - East Anglia & The Netherlands * £7 €20 $45 Shipping Included

This fascinating softback back book of around 110 pages is in pristine condition. It is not principally a picture book - it is a serious study of the links between the Netherlands and the close cross-channel region of UK we call East Anglia which includes Norfolk and Suffolk. One of the earliest and most important links was the wool and cloth trade together with silk-weaving.
The book is not limited to textiles but also examines influences on art, ceramics, architecture, land-drainage, agriculture and fishing. If you are interested in the early links of Dutch and English, this book is a great place to start.
