Product Description

Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (60 pages)
Author: M. Newsome
Year: (2003)
Publisher: ScotPress

"When one begins to research the history of Highland dress, it quickly becomes apparent that prior to the seventeenth century reliable information becomes hard to find, if available at all. Books may have a few introductory paragraphs dealing with this early period, but whole chapters detailing the characteristic tartans and plaids of seventeenth and eighteenth century Scotland. To be fair the historic record is not nearly as complete for this earlier period as it is for later centuries.... Here, in this little volume, I hope to share the fruits of that research, dispel some myths, and with any luck inspire the reader to further investigation...."

Newsome's quest for information on early Highland dress is presented both in text and in illustrations, in chapters titled: The Leine, A Leine Pattern, The Early History of the Kilt, Pre-Culloden Tartans, Gaelic Footwear, and The Sporran. There is as well an extensive bibliography referring the reader to additional sources for information on this most elusive of topics.

This CD consists of scans of the original book, which can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. Please note: it is not searchable.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:
Any computer using Adobe (Acrobat) Reader 4 or later
