Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We are pleased to be the exclusive North American distributor of this classic book. The vast wardrobe of Queen Elizabeth I is legendary: in her own time some of the richly embroidered gowns were displayed with other treasures to dazzle the eyes of foreign visitors to the Tower of London.<P>Designs for jewellery and embroidery, and gifts of clothing to and from the Queen are discussed, together with the symbolism of motifs and colors. The organization and staff of the Wardrobe of Robes, the work of craftsmen employed to make the Queen's clothes and accessories — tailors, embroiderers, farthingale-makers, cappers, hosiers, shoemakers, and others — and the wares supplied by silkwomen and silkmen, provide a background to the study. The work is copiously annotated.

Synopsis:

This work on the wardrobe of Queen Elizabeth I is illustrated with photographs of portraits, minatures, tomb sculptures, engravings, woven textiles and embroiders. Two indexes are provided: the first of paintings, persons, places and events; the second offering information on fashionable dress.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [ix]-xi) and indexes.
