New Book on the Block

There is a new book out, published April 7, 2015 by Pen and Sword Books, UK titled
Tracing your Trade & Craftsman Ancestor, by Adèle Emm

At Google Books you can get a pretty good preview of what it is about, giving a bit about the trades and crafts and how you, as a genealogist, can find records. Google books includes a search box and there is a clickable index at the back (scroll down).
I gave it a look-see and I have already learned the difference between a shoemaker, a bootmaker, a cobbler and a cordwain
Adèle at one point talks about the Book of Trades by Dutch Artist Jan Luyken, to which I gave the link in my article Guilds and Apprenticeships of May 2014.
Check out your bookstore, library and inter-loan.
