Sommerreihe Bücher für den Studiengang FLRM / Teil 10

Jeans of the Old West: A History
by Michael Allen Harris
Schiffer Publishing, 2010

Author Michael Allen Harris writes about the inventors and manufacturers of strengthened work pants, from the well-known Levi Strauss to the almost forgotten Yung Chow. More than 300 illustrations, including some of rare pre-1873 jeans, accompany the text. Levi Strauss bought one of its own pair of 1890s jeans at auction for $50,000, Harris says. So there just could be gold in them thar old jeans. As for Harris' book, it will wear well on any bookshelf. (Quelle: http://www.historynet.com)
