Sue Brandon. The variety of buttonhooks is endless. They were used since the 17th century (shoehorns, even earlier) but the Victorian era produced them in large quantities. In the beginning they belonged to men's dressing accessories, but when women started using them as well, it stimulated the production of "fashion hooks". 2000 Shire Publication. Paperback, black and white pictures, table of contents, bibliography. 32pp New
