Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I buy books on purses hoping to find pictures of early purses that have not been seen before. This book showed quite a few purses from the 18th and 19th century that I had not seen in the existing literature. Photographs of women from the 1920's, carrying purses, was another nice feature. The production values are excellent and the author has a very nice writing style that draws you in. It is also a large and substantial book for the money. The majority of the purses in the book are from the mid to later 20th century, which is a collecting niche of its own. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who loves purses.

Photos were excellent and the history of handbags, in general, was very interesting. I only wish that each bag had been identified by maker. Would have helped in collecting bags that are not marked.
