About the Author

Nick 2010About this website

The bulk of this website was created in 1997. It was never meant to be a scholarly resource for academic study, but was instead aimed at anyone with an interest in late 17th century clothing. Do bear in mind that at the time when the pages were written - 1997 and earlier - the author's English language skills were not yet bilingual. This website moved to its current host in 1999, Positive Internet, a highly recommendable company.

The main content of the website will not be updated nor changed, but remain available on the web.
