This book is a small paper bound book that can easily be found in used condition online at bookstores for $1.00 or a few bucks. I paid $6.50 for my copy from a used bookstore. The original price is $12.95 on the inside flap. There is no book cover.

The book measures 6.5" x 5.25", so it's a small paperback.

The book lists, chronologically, men's hats from 17th century (one image of a real hat) to the 1950's. Each page has one to two pictures of hats on it, from one angle. Each description is one-four lines long, includes a general description, perhaps etiquette, materials or source information. If the source of the hat is known, it is referenced below the small amount of text. What is particularly interesting, is that this book text is also in Italian, so both the English and Italian descriptions are next to each other.

Following the pages of hats by year or decade, is a small amount of photos of hat related information - photographs, hat tools and a quick introduction to the history of hats.

For photographs and tool info, the Fedora Lounge (www.thefedoralounge.com) is much better than the couple photographs shown in this book.

But for a fun book for a few bucks, this is a cute book to add to your library as a source of reference material. ( )
