My copy is the 3rd rev ed, American edition, 1971 reprinted by Barnes & Noble, 1972. While not as fantastic a resource as her Costume in Detail I love this quick overview of each era of fashion in clean concise line drawings showing the major features of each style for both men and women. An excellent starting point or refresher when researching a particular period.
