Written by Iris Brooke, who wrote many other works on historical costume. Bookplate to the front pastedowns, 'John M. Blundall'. Collated, complete.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding, in the original price-clipped dustwrappers. Externally, smart. A few light marks to the front board of 'Seventeenth to Mid-Nineteenth Century'. A little bumping to the head and tail of the spines and to the extremities. Dustwrappers with edgewear, resulting in some loss to the head and tail of the spines, and some loss to the tail of the rear wrap of 'Thirteenth to Seventeenth Centuries'. Light discolouration to the spines of the dustwrappers, and light marks to the wraps. Bookplate to the front pastedowns. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Blindstamp to the half-titles.
