I love historical fashion, and this book covers it all. There are heaps of pen and ink drawings of everything from shoes to bonnets to corsets to waistcoats and frock coats, and there is enough description of both men and women's dress, formal, informal, rich, or peasant, that you have all the bases covered and more. Any research needed, either for fancy dress, parties, theatrical performances, or reenactments, this is a good place to start!
