"From the most popular French fashion magazines of the late 19th century -- 52 extremely rare plates depict the latest in chic apparel for the well-to-do, including elegant day dresses with leg-o'-mutton sleeves, fur-trimmed hunting outfits, ruffled dresses for a day at the seaside, elaborately ornamented costumes for theatrically inclined lades and children, lavish evening wear with plunging necklines, a parade of millinery styles and much more. A splendid archive, with captions, for use by theatre and motion picture designers, artists, fashion historians, and casual browsers."--publisher description.
