Eric Dobby Publishing | ISBN 1858820391 | 29 Jun 1995 | PDF | 121 pages | 13.83 Mb
Inspired mainly from original sources throughout England, this is the crystallisation of many years spent in an analytical study of both men and women's costume ranging from contemporary paintings, sculpture and monumental brasses, to actual collections of costumes in both museums and private collections. Attention has been drawn only to the main styles of dress that have been worn in England from the time when the earliest visual records were made and to give approximately the periods when the main changes in fashion occurred. With a comprehensive and lucid text, carefully indexed and with over 500 illustrations, this is an invaluable source of reference for the expert seeking accuracy and attention to detail, as well as to students. The book is a standard work for anyone professionally or educationally involved in costume history but will also appeal to those interested in period costumes.
