    Vintage History of Costume Color Illustrations. From Zur Geschichte der Kostüme (The History of Dress) by Louis Braun, Munich: Braun & Schneider, 1912. A handsome lot of ten double-page plates illustrating the history of the world's clothing styles from the 15th through the 19th century. 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. Each plate could be framed and matted as a whole or the four vignettes could be cut and framed separately. All plates are slightly toned, and have a central horizontal fold crease where the pages are joined, otherwise they are in near fine condition. Framed and matted these illustrations would make a wonderful addition to any home, office, school, or business.
