''The product of over thirty years of research, this beautifully illustrated volume meticulously traces the history of late medieval and early Renaissance fashion in France and the Netherlands. Completed by Roger S. Wieck, the text is the magnum opus of Anne Hagopian van Buren, a dress historian and specialist of Netherlandish manuscripts who passed away in 2008. The text's publication was accompanied by an exhibition of the same title held at the Morgan Library & Museum in the summer of 2011.'' - Part of a review in Speculum, A Journal of Medieval Studies, Oct 2012.
