Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This valuable survey uses theatrical costumes as contemporary clues to the wearing apparel that was in vogue in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and Flanders from 1260 to 1840. Enhanced with the author's charming, accurately rendered illustrations, the study meticulously describes more than 200 costumes. Immensely useful to costume and cultural historians. 176 black-and-white illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

This volume contains a descriptive survey of the costumes worn by the upper classes in Europe, with many b&w drawings and a series of color plates. The history of theatre and theatrical costume, from which the author deducted evidence of contemporary dress, provides the historical structure of the survey. Not indexed.
