A Sampling of Victorian Resource Books for the Curious

Hi all,

I just thought I'd post a link to my latest post in the Steam Wench's salon, which lists a few resource books (most easy to find online and relatively inexpensive) for costumers, makers, and the generally Victorian-curious.  A couple of reproduction catalogues (a fascinating browse - it's amazing what Victorian department stores sold), a couple of purely costuming resources (and a couple of men's resources), and a couple of social history resources.  It's just a handful of books, but I recommend each of them.
