you will find a file titled _Bibliography_Leather.rtf_. Most word
processers will read it. There are examples in the Museum of London
volumes on Dress Accessories, Shoes and Pattens, and _The Secular
Spirit_. Mr. Waterer covered some examples in _Leather
Craftsmanship_. There are some in the York finds, but I've not gotten
that volume for my collection yet (buying books when my birthday is nearing
can get me clobbered by my family).
Cennini discusses methods of applying leaf to leather in _The Craftsman's
Handbook_, and the Alexis of Piemont volumes have several real and
simulated gold applications. _The Plitcho_ contains a couple of methods of
applying gold and simulated gold.
