4.0 out of 5 stars Good book but needs a re-edition 29 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is really complete, but hasn't been edited for more than 10 years. The space between lines is ridiculous and makes the reading unpleasant. A new edition would solve this, but I don't think is happening (it seems to me, the book has been abandoned).
It's a shame, the information is really good and relevant for the study of the period.

A very useful reference book and interesting read. A useful book for anyone who is studying fashion history and needs the social and economic background which is so important to understanding the fashions and life and the ordinary life.
