Braun and Schneider's Historic Costume
This comprehensive CD-ROM and book set includes 500 handsome, authentically detailed illustrations selected from a rare nineteenth-century volume of costumed figures. The monumental pictorial survey spans some 5,000 years of clothing history — from ca. 3000 B.C. to the end of the nineteenth century — and covers a wide variety of people, social classes, and professional types, among them Assyrian royalty, Italian scholars, German peasants, Dutch burghers, English Puritans, and French courtiers.
