The Pictorial Encyclopedia of Fashion

£9.99

Product description

Costume and History have always been linked. The clothes that the inhabitants of a country wore at one time shed light on the mores and customs of the people. This is why illustrated books on the history of costume are a source of information for those who study history, as well as contemporary illustrations of historical studies, give a perfect idea of ​​the fashion of the time.

The Encyclopedia of Costume and Fashion is an admirable overview of universal fashion through the ages. It will interest all those who are passionate about history, but also those who need references for a serious study of Fashion.

An obviously well, but carefully, used copy. The dust jacket is tatty, with many small tears around the edges, and there is some very light foxing on the first and last pages, but the book's binding is still fine and it is clean and good internally.
