Reader's note

Learn something new about something old with this 1946 edition of Taste and Fashion by James Laver. This subject is explored by the author from the French Revolution to the present day. He has sought his material in paintings, caricatures, and trade advertisements, and in grouping his material he has followed the two principles of "illustration by likeness" and "illustration by contrast" - relating a crinoline to the structure of the Crystal Palace, and showing the difference between the two bustles. There are special chapters on evening dress, sports clothes, the corset, colours and materials, and fur.
