The author's intention in compiling this work was to show by practical examples the history of the development of dress. This is the most reliable and authentic account of the subject, for the author took pains to base his study on actual pieces of clothing that have survived, only turning to paintings, statues and other reproductions in cases where originals no longer existed. Adopting an historical approach, the author examines the costumes of the ancient peoples of the Mediterranean lands and Asia Minor, progresses to the Teutonic prehistoric period, the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, 18th and 19th centuries. He covers all aspects of the subject: male and female fashions, outer as well as under garments, materials used, methods of tailoring, designs, dyes, fashions for all occasions (ballroom, court, travel, sports, military, theatre, religious ceremonies, etc.), garb worn by various professions and occupations, all types of accessories, and other categories of attire. ...
