Woven fabrics and dyeing, and spinning and weaving are the subjects of chapter 2 and 3 respectively. Chapter 4 is devoted to the representations of costume in Egyptian art. In chapter 5 she describes the actual extant garments in daily or funerary use, present in various museums of the world, particularly the collection of the Petrie Museum (UC inv.nos.). The materials from undisturbed tombs are also described. A separate chapter 6 is devoted to Tutankhamon's wardrobe. Chapter 7 is concerned with the Egyptian laundry and washing practice. Sewing and darning is dealt with in chapter 8. In the last chapter 9 the author devotes some attention to the relations between dress and rank and function in ancient Egypt. Suggestions for museums to visit and index added.

OEB 38393 (AEB 1994.0684) : "This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name, held in 1994 at the National Museum of Antiquities, Leiden. It is not a catalogue, although many objects on show in the exhibition are illustrated in the text. The book is instead an introduction to the subject of ancient Egyptian textiles and clothing. It is divided into three parts, which follow the theme and the structure of the exhibition. In the first part (chapters 1-3) the production of linen is described, from the flax seed to washing and textile repair. The second part (chapters 4-7) is devoted to the various ways linen was used in ancient Egypt, profane as well as religious including funerary. Special attention is paid to how clothing was used, both in daily life by private people and by the king, exemplified from the rich finds in the tomb of Tutankhamon (chapter 7). The last part is concerned with the various accessories worn in combination with clothing. They are: cosmetics (chapter 8, written by J. Fletcher), jewellery and amulets (chapter 9, by M. J. Raven), wigs and hair-dress (chapter 10, by Fletcher), and footwear (ch. 11, by the author and W. Z. Wendrich). In chapter 12 Raven sketches the history of the collection of Egyptian textiles (including Coptic ones) in the museum (see AEB 1994.0889). Glossary of textile terms and bibliography added."

OEB 36516 (AEB 1992.0841): "This is the German translation of a book which appeared in 1991 under the title Costume e cultura dell'antico Egitto. It begins with a series of rather brief chapters dealing with the country and the people, characteristics of Egyptian art, representations of clothes in early works of art, men's and women's dresses, textiles, precious and semi-precious stones, jewellery, and cosmetics. The main part consists of a series of splendidly executed drawings, often coloured, of Egyptian dresses of all periods, head-dresses, wigs, and footgear, along with reproductions of the Egyptian representations by which they were inspired. Bibliography."
