Whether theatrically inclined, a home-sew hobbyist or a living historian, Davenport's efforts are an invaluable tool for those interested in period clothing. As well as a history of the fashions of the time, we are given insight into the lives behind the clothing. Interspersed are period lithographs and photographs, along with detailed descriptions of the garments, that are first rate. A pity that this book is unavalable! (Although it has been my experience that the local library's copies of it do not stay on the shelves for long!)

Very handy for researching period costumes! Though I usually only need to reference a small portion of it, I still enjoy looking at the rest for fun!

This book is a very useful tool for assisting with making historically accurate costuming for re-enactment. It woould only be improved if there were even more pictures in it.

This is a nice book - large and informative. But I did not realize, nor was it specified, that this was just volume 1 - now I have to locate volume 2! I wish I had known or been told!
