One of the most extensive pictorial collections of its kind, this volume of 700 full-color illustrations provides an authentic and fascinating glimpse of what fashionable women were wearing more than 2,000 years ago. Like many of today's young ladies, fashionably dressed women of ancient Egypt favored pointed sandals and dresses of transparent materials. Off-the-shoulder gowns were popular, as was costume jewelry. Assyrian females liked fringed accents on their tunics and gowns, while Greek and Roman ladies of fashion were partial to loose robes that frequently revealed upper and lower limbs. Head coverings from helmets and shawls to wide-brimmed hats were de rigueur. Organized according to region--Egyptian, Assyrian, Greek, Roman, and Greco-Roman--the finely detailed drawings are accompanied by brief identifying captions. A valuable reference for costume historians and designers, this extensive pictorial collection will delight fashion enthusiasts as well.

Our European Origins, A Brief History of the Nations of Europe Written Especially for Genealogists and Family Researchers, by Col. Robert Shean Riley (Ret.)Our European Origins, A Brief History of the Nations of Europe Written Especially for Genealogists and Family Researchers, by Col. Robert Shean Riley (Ret.), 2011 reprint of second edition. 654 pages, 6x9", hardbound book, ISBN 978-1-936091-05-4. The aim of this book is to provide a brief, thumbnail history of the various nationalities of Europe, keeping in mind the particular interests of professional and amateur genealogists and family historians.  To appreciate this aim, the reader must realize that today many ethnic nationalities actually transcend current, established “national” borders and that the people they seek are not always to be found in the country which normally suggests their ethnicity.  For example, the Swiss-German and the Austrian are members of the Germanic race, but they are not to be found living in Germany.  Also, the people of Hungarian origin living in Transylvania do not live in Hungary; instead, today, they are citizens of Romania.  Thus, this history is about the many different peoples of Europe despite current borders. R3806-$80.00 More Information l Also available on CD

Victorian Needlework: Techniques and Designs, by Flora KlickmannVictorian Needlework: Techniques and Designs, by Flora Klickmann. 128 pages, 8.5x11", softbound book. Second to none in their admiration of fine stitchery, the Victorians adorned their homes and wardrobes with lavish displays of needlework and similar handicrafts. Most nineteenth-century women engaged in some form of sewing ― whether for pleasure, economy, or both and in the absence of a tutor, they turned to handbooks such as this rare and authentic guide to the rich and varied intricacies of needlecraft. Scores of diagrams and photos offer clear illustrations of the step-by-step directions for mastering an array of techniques and patterns. Ranging from a practical lesson in hemstitching to creating doilies with Hungarian embroidery, this vintage volume offers a treasury of what the Victorians termed "fancywork": decorative stitching such as Bulgarian, Catalan, Hungarian, and Baro embroidery; netting; Berlin wool-work; Bohemian, Carrickmacross, Innishmacsaint, and reticella lace: and a bevy of cousins to the burgeoning family of needlepoint. Aspiring or accomplished, needleworkers at every level of expertise will find projects here to love knotting fringes for a handsome finished edge, trimming collars and cuffs with dainty punched work, making a lace collar in Brussels braid, and numerous other crafts, all abounding in old-fashioned charm.
