Volume 1: Antiquity (500BCE-800AD), edited by Mary Harlow

Each volume discusses the same key themes in its chapters:

5. Gender and Sexuality
8. Visual Representations
9. Literary Representations
This structure means readers can either have a broad overview of a period by reading a volume or follow a theme through history by reading the relevant chapter in each volume.

Secrets Of A Fashion Therapist
Dressing for success is part of an everyday reality for all women in all walks of life. When faced with the overwhelming array of clothes offered in large stores, one is often besieged by self-doubt and in need of a strong hand to help develop that elusive quality called taste.
Enter Secrets of a Fashion Therapist from renowned Bergdorf Goodman personal shopper Betty Halbreich, who has dressed everyone from 12-year olds and their young mothers to media stars and grand dames. Sharing her impeccable, on-target fashion sense, Betty dispenses wisdom, humor, and advice on how to enhance natural beauty, build a more confident self-image, and most of all, have more fun getting dressed.
Betty first gives the reader a privileged look into the fashion world by taking her on a walk through Bergdorf Goodman, the famed specialty store. Along the way, Betty will explain how to shop like a professional in an enormous store (especially where the clothes seem too pricey, and the sales associates too haughty), deal with the limits of the ubiquitous dressing room, most effectively use a personal shopper, and utilize the general sales force of a specialty store.
With tips, magnificent pen-and-ink drawings, and tried-and-true methods that have remained infallible since the book's initial printing in 1997, Secrets of a Fashion Therapist teaches readers how to dress for all settings, from the workplace to cocktail hour to walking your dog. While broadening readers' attitudes towards fashion, Betty Halbreich will help women create a tasteful wardrobe that has "you" written all over it.

The Bobbsey Twins In A Great City
"Oh, there comes my skate off again! Freddie, have you got any paste in your pocket?" "Paste, Flossie! What good would paste be to fasten on your skate?" "I don't know, but it might do some good. I can't make the strap hold it on any more," and a plump little girl shook back her flaxen, curling hair, which had slipped from under her cap and was blowing into her eyes, sat down on a log near the shore of the frozen lake and looked sorrowfully at the shining skate which had become loosened from her shoe. "Come on, Flossie!" called the small, plump boy, just about the size of his sister, and with her same kind of light hair and blue eyes. "There go Bert, Nan and Tommy Todd 'way ahead of us. We'll never catch up to 'em if you sit here. Come on!"
