The new 35 volume “Clothing of Common People in Elizabethan and Early Stuart England (1558-1660)” series is by far the most detailed and all embracing study of the costume of the normal people of England so far undertaken for the period of Elizabeth, Shakespeare and the English Civil War. It draws on the study of surviving garments, paintings, plasterwork, over 18,000 wills and inventories and over 71,000 pre 1660 books and pamphlets. It rigorously examines and justifies whether the original evidence is trustworthy before moving on to analyse the nature of the clothes and how to construct replicas.
Essential reading for museums, theatre companies and re-enactors who wish to be truly accurate.
