Mr. Godey's Ladies: Being a Mosaic of Fashions & Fancies
Pyne Press, 1971 - Clothing and dress - 183 pages
"Robert Kunciov has skimmed the cream of some fifty years of the Lady's Book to recapture the clothes and the accessories, the advice of experts on beauty, etiquette and morality, and the hints on household management. His ... commentary supplements the fifteen faithful reproductions of the justly famed full-color plates, the hundreds of black and white illustrations, and the delightful text culled from the magazine. Together they present an ... edifying panorama of Victorian America's tastes, foibles and attitudes"--Back cover.
