Reader's note

This Book presents a lively visual cavalcade of changing fashions in European dress between the 1st century A.D. and 1900, brilliantly portrayed in Pauline Bayne’s ‘frieze’ illustrations which accompany Geoffrey Squire’s scholarly commentary. European costume has been influenced from different national centres as these gained in economic or political power, and the whole continent seemed to seek inspiration from Italy, France, or Spain, or England. This delightfully illustrated book is packed with information and would make a wonderful addition to any home!
