Klappentext

Excerpt from Proceedings of the Cambridge Antiquarian Society, Vol. 14: 18 October 6 December, 1909; With Communications Made to the Society, Michaelmas Term, 1909

The discovery, among some of the almost forgotten treasures in my collection of curios, of an ancient receipt for the payment of the tax on hair powder, led me to search for and compile some details regarding the use of powder on the human hair and on wigs. I find that the custom of using powder for the hair may be traced to the luxurious days Of ancient Rome, when, it seems, gold dust was used for the purpose. The custom, probably, came from the East, since the Jews are known to have used hair powder in early ages. Coming to a later date there is evidence that our Saxon ancestors coloured the hair either by dyeing or powdering, for we see in Saxon drawings the heads and beards of the men coloured blue.
