  I am selling my costume books and some of them are quite rare. I was hoping to keep them in Anstoerra. I was wondering if any of you know of someone who would be willing to buy them. For someone in Ansteorra I would be willing to put them on a lay-a-way plan.

Costume in the Drama of Shakespeare and his Contemporaries, by M. Channing Linthicum. (out of print) 
This out of print and hard-to-find book contains in-depth and extensively footnoted information on Elizabethan fabrics and colors, information not contained in any other book on 16th century dress. It also covers stage costume and costume in plays during the Elizabethan era, and diverges into such topics as the textile trade, quirks of fashionable dress and the evolution of dyes in Elizabethan England. Once I'd read it, I didn't know how I'd gotten along without it. More of a research resource than a practical book on Elizabethan costume construction, this book is a must-have for the serious 16th century costume historian.
