Lindsey Brooks | 12 comments The only book I know of about this subject is
Fisher, Leonard Everett. "The Hatters"
New York: Marshall Cavendish, 2001

I'm afraid I can't comment on it because I haven't read it. It may give you a starting point, however. I would suggest Google might be able to help you too. ;P

Jo Butler (joannbutler) | 4 comments Don't be taken in by claims that colonial 'milliners' were hatmakers. They were actually dealers of Italian goods from Milan.
