THE MODE IN HATS AND HEADDRESS By R. Turner Wilcox
R. Turner Wilcox's THE MODE IN HATS AND HEADDRESS, published in 1945, is a scholarly masterwork of headwear fashion and history. Understand that Ms. Wilcox is not only responsible for the text, but is also the illustrator of the 193 plates appearing below. If the illustrations are not impressive enough, reading her key words and phrases for these twenty-three chapters give some idea of the depth of her knowledge on this frequently arcane subject. I cannot adequately thank R. Turner Wilcox for what she has taught us about the history of the hat business.
