No real information inside, just a collection of drawings.
T. Schooley
This book has lovely pictures, although the author admits she has taken the liberty to decide which should be included for each year.

Anyone interested in fashion accessories of this period will not be disappointed.

Format: Paperback
This review is from the viewpoint of a home sewer and crafter who adores vintage clothing, not a fashion historian, designer or illustrator.
Never having purchased any of the Pictorial Archives series before, I was surprised and initially disappointed by the black and white illustrations and the complete lack of text.
While it is fascinating to see how fashion accessories evolved over the decades there is no indication of whether an item was casual and day wear, or dressier for afternoon or evening. An index naming the style of each piece and/or notes explaining popular colors of the day would be helpful.
The black and white illustrations do render the detail of the accessories beautifully. With over 2,000 copyright free illustrations of wide variety of styles for men, women and children included I look forward to years of inspiration for fashion embellishment.

This book is exactly what it claims to be - a pictorial archive. For descriptions or details, Dover has a wide selection of books that will be of immense help with materials, construction, and history. For those who already have a working knowledge of the century in fashion, this book is a candy store of visual tidbits.
Just a note: very few fashion illustrations of the nineteenth century were colored; hand-coloring was a labor-intensive process reserved for high-end publications with limited runs. Check my Listmania list for some books with color illustrations.

Format: Paperback
This book has lovely pictures, although the author admits she has taken the liberty to decide which should be included for each year. It would be an even better book if the articles were named, better yet a small description, sometimes I wondered if a shoe were a man or woman's.
I think the book is good but stops short of being great but it is interesting and I would like to a sequel with the other drawings that were left out of this edition.

This book is great. It is just what I was looking for in doing some period research. The illustrations could only be better if they were in color. Anyone interested in fashion accessories of this period will not be disappointed.

There is a great need for reference material of the past. particularly the 1900`s through 50`s. This publication had some good illustrations but there were no references as to source, just a time period and thus only of general backgroud reference. . I also found that many of the images were common available images elsewhere. The low price made the purchase an acceptable member of my reference library even if it be only for tracking down better information from other more detailed resources of the images that were shown.

I was not happy with this one, the whole book looks just like the cover. No real information inside, just a collection of drawings.

Information of the clothing that was worn in the Victorian era. I don't want to write anymore so I will not do so.
