I have a small stack of articles I photocopied some years back. Two are
from Waffen-und-Kostumkunde (I think they live at Temple University library
in Philadelphia). I kept a few, but I admit to copying some because I
thought some SCA needlework mavens might find them of use.
They are ALL in German. Sorry!
1. "überreste von Leinenunterzeug aus der zweiten Hälfte des XV Jahrhunderts
in Finnlands Nationalmuseum" (from 1960).
This 8 page articles has a couple of photos of extant babies' bodices, and
some primary sources showing what they might have looked like (including a
Holbein picture of a babe-in-arms which gives a really great view of this
kind of bodice).
2. "Die ungarische Galakleidung im XVI adn XVII Jahrhunderts"
A 21 page article on Hungarian royal clothing, with some line drawings. One
photo is captioned as being an over gown of Queen Maria. There is a close
up of the brocade pattern in that garment (alas, b &w!) There is a line
diagram (not to scale) for reconstructing this gown. I wish I had had access
to this when I did my SCA booklets on Hungarian garb (as well as Russian and
Polish, all those years ago).
I also have a 14-page article that my friend kindly copied for me-- I think
she was trying to nudge me into researching table carpets (nice try,
King, Donald, "The C arpet Collection of Cardinal Wolsey", from "Oriental
Carpet &TExtiles Studies", Edited by Robert Pinner and Walter B. Denny,
Published in association with HALI Magazine, London, 1985.
If anyone is interested in one, two, or all of three articles, please
contact me off-list.
I'd really reather not throw them away, so I hope someone on the List would
find them useful. If there are no takers I'll try again after Labor Day
(Post Pensic War).. I'm tryingto clean out myfiels!
