      Dear Philippa Alderton,


      I would like to draw your attention to several books relating to
      medieval and archaeological textiles and clothing: some new and others
      on their way to us at great prices.

      Firstly, long-awaited, but welcomed nonetheless, we have just received
      "Ancient Textiles: Production, Craft and Society", a collection of
      papers dealing with textiles from the ancient world, with plenty of
      medieval papers and a few stretching into the eighteenth century. A
      full list of papers can be viewed by clicking the link for this book
      below.

      Accompanying this book is a useful short guide: "First Aid for the
      Excavation of Archaeological Textiles". Also available from us right
      now.

      Just published by our friends at Brepols is "Weaving, Veiling and
      Dressing: Textiles and their Metaphors in the Late Medieval Ages",
      which presents a collection of essays on textiles and the medieval
      Church.

      On their way to us from England are two Boydell books which we have
      managed to acquire at extremely good prices: Gale Owen-Crocker's
      "Dress in Anglo-Saxon England" which was released in a new edition in
      2004 and the Museum of London's "Medieval Horse and its Equipment".
      Secure your copies now!

      And finally, a brief reminder (because I am told that the books are
      about to be shipped to us) about the late Olaf Goubitz's "Purses in
      Pieces" and "Stepping through Time", both of which will be available
      exclusively from us.

      We will look forward to hearing from you.

      With regards,

      Ian Stevens
