* A superb book for those interested in the history of fashion* Widely used by theater and film producers as well as colleges of art and design* Numerous finely detailed drawings throughout* Second Edition 9780245599361 1970Inspired mainly from original sources throughout England, this is the crystallization 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 both for the expert seeking accuracy and attention to detail and also for 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.
