Product description

Soft card covers with whole book almost as new. No dust jacket. Lavishly illustrated with 18/19 Century fashion cartoons. Second photo shows an up-to-date version of fashion, along with several other comical modern cartoons.
This fully illustrated catalogue focuses on the fads and follies of fashion from the 1770s to the 1820s. It features satirical prints by such artists as Robert Dighton, Richard Newton, Rowlandson, Gillray and the Cruikshank dynasty, as well as a number of amateur and anonymous draughtsmen. Drawn from the collections of the British Museum's Department of Prints and Drawings, these hand-coloured etchings and mezzotints caricature the ridiculous fashions of the day, depicting and exaggerating such trends as towering hairdos, gigantic hats, tight corsets, puffed bosoms and bottoms and riots of frills. There are also fashion plates, portraits and crowd scenes included in the catalogue, as well as an illuminating introductory essay by Diana Donald, Professor of the History of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University.
