Historic Costume in Pictures
From 1861 to 1890 the Munich publishing firm of Braun & Schneider published plates of historic and contemporary costume in their magazine Münchener Bilderbogen. These plates were eventually collected in book form and published at the turn of the century in Germany and England. This volume presents all 125 double-spread plates from the third English edition. For the first time, the plates appear in chronological order and with English captions.

engravings of historic costume as translated through various paintings and sketches. Lots of extrapolation. Not great as source material for determining historical correctness, but good for those who just want an overview of the types of clothing worn in various periods. Read full review
