British Costume from Earliest Times to 1820 by Emily Jessie Ashdown
This hard-to-find classic, by Mrs. Charles H. Ashdown, draws on primary sources--actual costumes, illuminated manuscripts, effigies, etc.--to provide authentic detailed coverage of what people wore in Britain from the early Saxon period (ca. 460 a.d.) to the reign of King George III (1820). Clothing of commoners, royalty and ecclesiastics is included. The book is indispensable for fashion historians.
