Tudor Costume and Fashion
The period of Tudor rule in England (1485-1603) marked the appearance of an unprecedented opulence in fashion worn by royalty and members of the nobility, with social rank often reflected in attire. This monumental study by a brilliant and imaginative scholar examines that colorful period in fashion history, from the reign of Henry VII through that of Elizabeth I. Composed of two books bound as one, this carefully researched and profusely illustrated volume includes 1,000 black-and-white figures (including diagrams showing the construction of various garments and head coverings), 24 halftones, and 22 full-color plates, nearly all taken from contemporary sources, which enliven this authoritative and exhaustive study of period clothing, an indespensable resource for fashion designers and historians and a dazzling pageant of living history for the general reader.
This Dover edition, first published in 1997, in an unabridged, corrected republication in one volume of the work originally published in two volumes by J.M. Dent & Sons Ltd., London, in 1938 under the title Costume and Fashion Volume Three: The Tudors, Book 1 and 2.
