Book Description

"The selection of contemporary works of art is refreshingly individual, the drawings are lively and exact. Taken all together they make a picture-gallery of the past that will delight the ordinary reader almost as much as it will profit the student."--Times Literary Supplement (London). More than 300 illustrations grace the highly readable pages of this magnificent fashion history, a stylistic panorama that ranges from the Norman conquest to the early nineteenth century, focusing chiefly on armor, from the Crusades to the seventeenth century; clothing of the English upper classes, both sexes, eleventh to nineteenth centuries; and accessories, including gloves, belts, corsets, shoes, and headgear. Virtually every page is illustrated with permission-free images gathered from museums and private collections, derived from illuminated manuscripts, tapestries, paintings, and other rare sources. Elaborate line drawings offer multiple perspectives on individual garments, with captions highlighting the more arcane aspects. Unabridged reprint of the classic 1931 edition. 342 black-and-white illustrations.
