This is a generally good and reliable book. It traces descriptions and depictions of Irish dress through the 17th century, and Scottish Highland dress through the 18th century. Its value is mainly in the many quotations from original descriptions and illustrations and pictures of original depictions, although the interpretation of these is also mainly sound. The inclusion of the original material, however, allows one to judge for oneself the value of McClintock's interpretations.
