    1. This short book, 79 pages, details some of the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Gallery (Williamsburg, VA) clothing collection from eighteenth century, which was on exhibit in the mid-1980's. I was confused by the title, thinking that this was a collection of clothing that was actually worn in colonial Williamsburg. It's not. Most of the pieces were acquired in Europe, mainly England and France, for this collection. The basics of undergarments and how different clothing pieces and accessories were [...]

    2. This is a carefully researched, beautifully photographed monograph on everyday clothing and high style fashions worn by early Americans during this important century in our history. A valuable resource for costume designers, writers, re-enactors, and historians, it also provides documentation and suggestions for further study.

    3. There is a surprising amount of information considering how short this book is. Great photographs, artwork, and descriptions. Also a few photographs from the back and inside of the garments, and detail shots. More information on lower class and menswear than I've seen in other publications. There were even a couple pages on accessories for both men and women.

    4. Beautiful detailed closeup photographs of garments in the collections at Colonial Williamsburg. First rate visual work for those interested in styles and motifs used in clothing of this period.
