Accessories of Dress: An Illustrated Encyclopedia by Katherine Lester, Helen Westermann, Bess Viola Oerke


Drawing upon a vast number of historical sources, the authors of this useful reference have created an entertaining account of the forms of personal adornment men and women have used throughout the ages to enhance their wearing apparel. From hats, veils, wigs, and cosmetics, to cravats, shawls, shoes, and gloves, to walking sticks, handbags, fans, and furs, the engaging commentary displays the humor and personal charm of the many-sided story of accessorized apparel. 644 figures and 59 plates.
