Hi.  I'm a graduate student in History writing my thesis on the Elizabethan
Acts of Apparel (sumptuary laws).  One aspect of my thesis will discuss the
moral issues surrounding extravagent dress.  I was wondering if anyone had
any suggestions regarding sixteenth century cases of conduct literature that
deal with abuse of apparel that I should look at.  I've already read Phillip
Stubbes _Anatomie of Abuses_, something by William Averell and Charles Bansley
(the titles escape me at the moment), and William Harrison's _Description of
England_ (the section on the dress of the English).
        I know people on this list are a little touchy right now about simple
requests for information, but I am one of the few people at my university
studying this time period (the department has a mostly American West emphasis)
and I have very few resources for information to turn to.  Any help you could
give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
