The object of this book is to give a continuous account of the dress worn by the people inhabiting Greek lands, from the earliest times of which we have any record down to the Hellenistic age. The first chapter stands somewhat apart from the rest, since it deals with the costume of the race which occupied the Aegean shores before the real Hellenic races arrived on the scene, and of which we have abundant remains in Crete and elsewhere within the Aegean area.
