KIRKUS REVIEW

Useful reference book for public libraries, schools, camps, etc. as it covers authoritatively the details of period styles, comparable materials available today, foundation patterns, accessories, etc. There is a colored frontis, the balance of the illustrations are charts, diagrams and line drawings. Following an introductory text, successive sections -- each with a brief historical background -- include Indians, Eskimos, Colonists, 18th and 19th century costumes, through the Civil War. The final sections give useful information on materials, dyeing, etc. Bibliography. Index.
