Similar to the many Dover publications in look. Most of the illustrations are drawings taken from catalogs or magazines of the time plus a few period photos. Some of the illustrations are poorly reproduced resulting in muddied detail but overall a decent introduction to the period during which women's dress changed so dramatically. 2 page bibliog and index.
