A handsome lot of ten double-page plates illustrating the history of the world's clothing styles from the 18th and 19th centuries. These remarkable illustrations measure 13.25 x 16.75 inches and have the appearance of being hand-colored plates. Each plate features four vignettes, each representing a specific mode of dress from the period. All captions are in German text.
