Which plate or plates were you looking at specifically? Generally,
the Munson book is fairly good within the limits of the printing
process (i.e., he may not have the -exact- green but if its printed
in green, you can be pretty sure it wasn't pink) but a couple of
the plates are generally considered to be way off. For instance,
the German 'lilac' or 'mauve' color he shows is generally considered
'not close'. 'Course, not having any original fabric samples of the
German 'mauve' in my posession, I'm pretty much relying on what other
folks say. Still, my intuition is that the German mauve was closer
to the British red (PC 12 - have I got that right?) than to the color
Munson illustrates.
