Bibliography on Straights, Shaving and Razor-related History

From Shave Library
Jump to: navigation, search

I asked about books on straights and such a while ago, and got some good information. I also hit the library for related journal articles and such, and included those few that I know of that are available on the internet.

Please note that many of these are out of print. (Thinking of which, I should have bought my copy of The Razor Anthology before I posted this!). And that I had to change the bibliography style to include the URLs, so the format is slightly different.[1]
