A wonderful reference for costumes from the time periods. The clothes are excellent and colorful. Great books to own.

I own 2 copies of both books by Norma Lu Meehan along with every book she has done, I have an order for her new book Little Ladies of Fashion, which is a great book as well.Thank You!,N.Snyder

If you are looking for a few more paper dolls with a few historical costumes, then it's great. However, I was looking for a real history book with great illustrations. This is not it.
