Format: Hardcover
"Hispanic Costume, 1480-1530" is a beautifully organized and thorough study of the costume of Spain during this period. The text and illustrations work very well together, but the arrangement of the illustrations is just outstanding. Ms. Anderson uses close-up photos of paintings, sculpture and actual costume items from the period, all organized by costume item (e.g., Women's shoes, men's cloaks). The reader experiences the rare treat of seeing several representations of the same type of item on the same page -- I can't think of a better way to gain a good visual understanding of the characteristics of various elements of costume in a single period.
This book also made me re-think the influence of Spanish costume on other parts of Europe during the 16th century -- particularly in costume in Italy. Whether you agree or not, check out this book and see for yourself.

Very, very good for the serious historical costumer who is interested in Spanish influence on fashion during the 16th century. Covers both male and female clothing in amazing detail. Spanish terms for clothing are easily identifiable and well defined. This is one book that no 16th century costumer should be without!

Format: Hardcover
While I sympathize with the plight of finding info on Portuguese costume this book deals with Spanish costume primarily (one of the possible definitions of Hispanic). It does have bits that would be useful to costume historians interested in Portugal or Italy, especially if no dedicated book can be found, but that is not its main point at all. If you are interested in Spanish costuming for that period, however, it is probably the book to have, complemented by Carmen Bernis' "Trajes y Modas en la España de los Reyes Católicos"* vols 1 (men's costume and glossary) and 2 (women's costume).
The only thing I dislike about this book is that it is divided into sections dealing with the various garments or garment parts (sleeves, jerkins, skirts, etc). While this is an interesting and useful approach, it is hard to relate what goes with what and so encourages the mismatching of costumes by putting toguether elements from different decades or those which would not have been put toguether.
Also, bear in mind that most of the pictures are in black and white and that there no modern patterns at all in it.
