Greece, Rome & The Celtic Nations: The History Of Dress, Arms & Tools Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 06:29:51

While this one has considerably more art than most of the others that came with the bundle I got. It's essentially images ripped from some other book that clearly had more information that this doesn't. This one doesn't infuriate me as much as the others as it has more than one page. (Quite a few of the others I had didn't.) It's not bad, but it's not good either as there's not any descriptions of what you're looking at. I'm more interested to find the book this was taken from, as it probably would have the descriptions attached to give more insight into the costumes, arms, and tools. And in all likelihood it's probably considerably cheaper...

Word of advise, you're better off googling these costumes and consulting wikipedia. Sadly this just isn't anywhere near as useful as it could be, and should be.

Ancient Egypt, Africa & Asia: The History Of Dress, Arms & Tools Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 06:19:24

A series of (likely stolen) images on various cultures from ancient Africa, Egypt, and the near-East. No labels, no descriptions, just page after page of images that are clearly from other books. Not worth the price. Google images and Wikipedia will get you a lot more, save your time and money and don't buy this.

Greco-Roman: National Dress & Period Costume Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 06:12:02

One of the better products in this series, but that's not really saying a lot. Thankfully this one consists of more than a single page unlike most in the series. It suffers from the same problem most of them do with no descriptions, labels, or information. Also the images are from various artists, which makes me think that the artwork may be stolen. This has the feel of something that was slapped-together from google images and compiled into a product designed to scam people out of their money.

Ancient Rome: Large Format National Dress & Period Costume Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 06:05:55

This is a single page of 'clipart' that has a smattering of various Roman armors and uniforms with no labels, no descriptions, etc. There's also not one civilian or female roman outfit as well. And be warned, most of this 'reference' series is just as awful with the better ones not being all that good either.

Ancient Greece: Large Format National Dress & Period Costume Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 06:03:21

This is just a single page with a bunch of random Greek drawings on it, with only one civilian outfit, and covering almost entirely military garb such as armor, spears, etc, it's far from comprehensive. To make matters worse there's no descriptions, labels, etc. So you're just buying overpriced clipart that you can't use for anything.

Save yourself the money, visit wikipedia or google images...

Ancient Egypt & The East: National Dress & Period Costume Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 06:01:08

Compared to the other products in this series, this one's actually got enough to make it a okay reference. Not a good one, or a great one, mind you, just okay. It lacks any info, descriptions, labels, etc. to make it truly useful, but considering it's more than one page (most of the products in this series aren't) it earns the $3 pricetag a bit more than the others.

Ancient European Tribes: Large Format National Dress & Period Costume Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 05:58:56

Like a lot of the other products in this collection, the meat of this product is a single page that has various costumes on it. Not a single women's outfit, and not enough to justify the $3 price. There's no labels, no other info, just some overpriced clipart that you can't use for anything.

Ancient Gaul: Large Format National Dress & Period Costume Reference Collection
by Philip S. Date Added: 05/30/2019 05:56:43

I thought this was going to be some sort of reference with information. What I got was a single page of pictures, with no text, no labels, etc. There's not even a comprehensive amount of images to really span the scope of ancient Gaullic society. It's not a useful product, and it's certainly not worth the $3 pricetag. This is essentially buying a page of clipart that you can't use for anything.
