This book has been outdated by the internet. Images are not used very informative/illustrative, but seem to have been chosen rather arbitrarily. However, it does give an overview of brands and of different undergarments.

Shelves: history
A brief history of lingerie of the 20th century divided by decade in chronological order. Lots of lovely photos of undergarments, most of which I've never seen before. I probably don't buy my undies in high priced stores.
