Description - Costume Worldwide: A Historical Sourcebook by Melissa Leventon

"Costume Worldwide" combines the studies of two classic 19th-century illustrators, Auguste Racinet and Friedrich Hottenroth, alongside an illuminating modern text. Their works are presented first by chronology and then by subject, so that illustrators, historians and students alike can choose to follow the path of fashion through the centuries, or study in detail the contrasting styles of individual clothing and accessories. With an authoritative narrative from a leading expert in the history of costume, extraordinary contemporary quotes that reveal the impact in its day, detailed annotation and an extensive glossary, the book provides a magnificent study of the rich vocabulary of clothes through the ages.
