A History of Costume
The author's intention in compiling this work was to show by practical examples the history of the development of dress. This is the most reliable and authentic account of the subject, for the author took pains to base his study on actual pieces of clothing that have survived, only turning to paintings, statues and other reproductions in cases where originals no longer existed.
This Dover edition, first published in 1963, is an unabridged republication of the English translation first published by George G. Harrap and Company, Limited, in 1928. The sixteen full-page plates were reproduced in color in the 1928 edition.
