AB: Cunnington – History of Underclothes

(This is an entry in the Annotated Bibliography.)

Cunnington, C. Willett and Phillis Cunnington. The History of Underclothes. Mineola, New York: Dover Publications, Inc., 1992.

This book contains some useful monochrome images of underclothing from a broad period of time, but is at this point quite dated, particularly in terms of the theory used in the text. It was originally published in London by Michael Joseph Ltd in 1951. If readily available, the book is worth looking at, but there are much better resources available. See entry on English Women’s Clothing in the Nineteenth Century for further information on the author. This book is not instructional. It contains monochrome images. It contains a brief bibliography of primary and secondary sources.
