      I stopped loaning out expensive books for that same
      reason..anyway..I add another pic, under hats and garb, I think and
      I may be wrong, that this woman is wearing a brimless with a
      veil.She was one of Queen Catherine's ladies in waiting, and
      Catherine died in 1589, so timing is right..although my group
      doesn't snip about garb, I would like to get it right..and I have
      always thought this style was cute..
