<<Has anyone ever seen "The Costumes of Eastern Europe" or "Folk
Costumes from East Europe, Africa, and Asia" by Max Tilke? I was
considering buying one of these for information on Polish garb, but I
can't find anything recommending for or against these books.>>
A review of another Max Tilke work,_Oriental Costumes: Their Design and Colors_, written by Marquesa Laurellen de Brandevin (Tammie Dupuis) is located at http://www.vertetsable.com/errata_bookreviews.htm.
You may also want to get the books via ILL before spending that kind of money. _Folk Costumes_ is currently selling for $55 and _The Costumes of Eastern Europe_ is $160 (www.bookfinder.com).
I seem to recall that there are not many pages of Polish clothing in _The Costumes of Eastern Europe_. Not enough for me to justify that kind of money. YMMV.
