They're not "period" as we say it (pre-1600), just historical (most
pre-WWII).  Most of Nancy's stuff is that way.  But they are nice socks if
you like to knit with very fine yarn on really fine needles (I lack the
patience).  I think the person needs a little sock-knitting skill to get
through the book, but others tell me not.
