American Victorian Costume
This is one of the few books on Victorian costume to be illustrated solely by American photographs. Over 250 rare photographs depict American men, women, and children of all ages, dressed in their Sunday best. Every trend in 19th-century fashion unfolds through a fifty year period from 1840 to 1890: prim and demure in the 1840's, then, after a lively 50-year period of hoops, bustles and bloomers, the shirtwaists, and tailored suits of the Gay Nineties. Beautifully reproduced, the photographs in this collection bring the nineteenth century to life and show how ordinary Americans dressed.
