Hi, I am pleased you have asked about books.
Books are the foundation stone of knowledge. You need all of these if you are serious about collecting SS cloth. They might not be cheap and this is the problem, people don't want to pay. Instead they try to save a few $/£/Euros and go straight to trying to find original material. But without decent books in your collectors armoury you will always be fighting a loosing battle. You simply will not know what you are looking at.
Buy the books, read the forum everyday, then try and buy the items. But start with trustworthy dealers and have the item vetted here. Don't try and find bargain items trawling e bay and the like. Spend your time and money in a profitable way. This is the key to sucess in collecting this material.
Hope this helps?
When you don't even bother to say a simple "thank you", do you really believe
that I'll ever again will take time and post refernce pics, mixed with with your items
so you can compare and learn something?..
I really have better things to do so the answer is; No Sir, I don't think so. Buy the books in post 12.
