£100.00

Product description

Original half leather binding with marbled boards, gilt title and number 4 on the spine. 464 pages,no title page, first page of text is a list of contents ,engravings, wood-cuts and coloured plates. This volume contains the journals for July to December, no date given, all 26 coloured plates are present , five of which are loose. The boards are in good condition although rubbed, text tightly bound although the final section weak, the pages have browned although not heavily and with some foxing which has not affected the plates as the colours are bright and fresh.

The Ladies' Cabinet of Fashion, Music and Romance was one of the longest running English women's magazines of the mid-nineteenth-century. First published in 1832, it purported to be produced and edited by a pair of sisters, Margaret and Beatrice De Courcy. Evidence suggests the De Courcys were in fact either pseudonyms, or entirely fictional creations. The Ladies Cabinet features a mix of short stories, poetry, sheet-music, special interest pieces, and reports on the latest in women's fashions from London and Paris. It is also heavily illustrated; in addition to woodcuts and copper-engraved illustrations of the narratives, each issue carries a charming collection of elegantly handcoloured fashion plates.
