First in this, expanded and revised, edition. [First: Bachman & Turner, 1985] Signed by the author on the title page — unverified and reflected as such in the lack of premium. From the cover: “The history of the knicker is a history of women’s rights as much as fashion. From Queen Victoria and the Quaker reformer Amelia Bloomer to the G-string, Rosemary Hawthorne is the perfect guide through this fascinating history. Delving through bloomers, briefs and bustles, one of Britain’s leading fashion historians describes the importance of the humble knicker. From the muslin-clad elegance of Jane Austen’s England to the corset bound nineteenth century, scrutinising school knickers, the Y-front and much more… there isn’t a brief left unturned.”
