Review: Five Centuries of American Costume

User Review  - Goodreads

Really good. Lots and lots of hand-drawn pictures of both men and women from Norsemen to Eskimos to European military to women's military uniforms from WWII to fashion of the 40s. There's a broad sweep with both sexes well represented in a variety of situations. Read full review
