[Northkeep] Costumers

For those costumers etc. who are interested in late period clothing I've
come across some information on another list which might be  useful.

Someone was looking for:  "Drafting & Constructing a Simple Doublet &
Trunkhose of the Spanish Renaissance" by R.W. Trump

Apparently this book is part of a series called "The Sartor System".
Some of which are apparently available in hardcopy from Alban (the
fellow who scans period documents and sends you copies of the photo's
for free).

Apparently he now distributes copies electronically.

I'll forward contact information for Master Robert when and if it gets
posted and if there is any interest.   I don't believe he is active in
the SCA anymore but he was at one time Master Robert Sartor von
Pays-Bas.   That's right "Master RSVP".  He was active in B3R when I
started ('77) and still lives in STL.  

The discussion led to the following useful tidbit for finding
non-circulating books:

>Have you tried looking it up on Worldcat.org?  
>It might be able to  find the closest library with a copy.

I'm not familiar with this  site.  Anybody?
