Серия: Dover Pictorial Archive
Unlike many more recent costume histories, this hard-to-find classic drew on primary sources - actual costumes, illuminated manuscripts, missals, brasses, effigies, etc. - for absolute authenticity in providing a detailed, comprehensive account of what people wore in Britain from the early Saxon period (ca. 460 A.D.) through the reign of George III (1820). Here is meticulous, detailed coverage of tunics, cloaks, gowns, robes, mantles, dresses, and many other garments, as well as headgear, footwear, and accessories, worn during the fifth century, the early medieval period and Plantagenet reign, the time of the Tudors, the Elizabethan era, and through the early years of the house of Hanover. Over 470 illustrations chronicle the evolution of clothing styles - from the simple robes, boots, and mittens worn by the lower classes, to the sartorial splendor of royalty and the specialized clothing and accoutrements of ecclesiastics. Among a host of charming illustrations are portrayals of revelers attending a medieval dance, strolling minstrels, a royal picnic during the late 15th century, and numerous other vignettes. Artists, students of fashion and design, cultural historians, and anyone interested in the history of fashion will find this rare volume an invaluable resource.
