Clean, tight, unmarked; a few very light scratches to covers; otherwise very minimal wear; Humorous and informative, this guide chronicles the history of undergarments, from the early days to the 1960s. Did you know that before 1800 no nice women wore knickers at all? that until World War II many poorer people made their knickers out of old flour bags? that during the War women made hand-knitted knickers? that 60s women enjoyed a craze for throwaway paper panties? that in the USA you can buy edible, cherry-flavoured knickers? This is the book that gets to the bottom of what is worn next to nothing.
