The Cordwainers is one of the oldest livery companies in the City of London (from 1272). For centuries, Cordwainers made boots and hoes for the 'well-heeled' citizens of the City, and the Company's name derives from their use of the finest white leather from Cordoba. This book traces the Cordwainers' history for over 700 years, showing how it has suffered, adapted and flourished. Written by the Company's honorary archivist, Past Master Clive Willcocks, this comprehensive history of the Cordwainers is the product of several years of meticulous research and features a wealth of colour illustrations, many from the Cordwainers' archive, and never before published.
