Format: Paperback
This is reprint of a 1909 catalog. Catalogs are a great reference for looking at clothes because they are always shown clearly, from head to toe, and in all the important details are pointed out for you. This book is an excellent resource for inspiration for suit jackets, skirts, lace blouses, inimate apparel, and heirloom clothing for children.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful carbon copy of the original catalog. It does not have any modern insight or text on the period. Only the original catalog pages and descriptions. There are not any photographs either. The engravings and descriptions are detailed and precise. It covers various styles for different age groups, accessories, shoes, hats, undergarments, et cetera. The original descriptions are helpful as well. A moderate knowledge of early twentieth century fashion/fabric terminology helps. Just imagine thumbing through a modern Sears catalog....it's pretty close to the same experience.

Format: Paperback
This book has great pictures of 1909, they are wonderful to study. It only covers 1909 and not the rest of the early 1900's during which there were lots of fashion changes. Right after this time period there were further changes so it's a good stopping point. Dover is great for those of us who are looking at vintage fashion!
