This valuable study by Iris Brooke showcases apparel in vogue in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and Flanders from 1260 to 1832. Noted for her series of books on English costume–two of which have previously been reprinted by Dover–the author’s text is enhanced with more than 200 of her own charming and accurately rendered illustrations, including 32 in color. The survey carefully depicts and meticulously describes scores of costumes; medieval gowns with long-tongued sleeves and pocket-like slits, hoop skirts and crinolines, and high-waisted dresses for women; and, for men, cloaks, tunics and slippers; farthingales, ruffles and bombasted (padded) breeches; and skin-tight trousers, top hats, and knee boots for men. Immensely useful to costume and cultural historians, this one-volume republication will appeal to anyone interested in the evolution of clothing styles. Unabridged republication of Western European Costume and Its Relation to the Theatre, originally published by George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., London, Vol. 1, 1939; Vol. 2, 1940. 2 volumes bound as one. Index. 176 black-and-white illustrations. 32 color illustrations.
