E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
Dress. The ornamental parts of the alb, at the lower edge and at the wrists. Catechu’mens used to talk of putting on their apparels, or fine white surplices, for the feast of Pentecost.   1
        Pugin says: “The albe should be made with apparels worked in silk or gold, embroidered with ornaments.”
        Rock tells us—“That apparels were stitched on the upper part of the amice, like a collar to it.”
