Paperback Verified download. Although this book is full of stunning garments and gorgeously photographed with most of the clothing described well in great detail, I was very annoyed with its arrangement.

Although as a curator and as someone who does exhibits I can understand the choice to present items according to a theme, I found this approach extremely frustrating. It would have been much better if the clothing had been presented in chronological order so that comparisons were easy to make and there was a natural progression as styles were changed bit by bit through tailoring, drapery and foundation garments. Let me begin by saying that this is a beautiful book.

It's coffee table sized, and printed on nice glossy pages that show off the wonderful photography. While the focus is on women's clothing, there are also several examples of men's fashion as well. As the title would imply, the book includes clothing from the beginning to the end of the 19th century. However, if you are looking for examples of Regency clothing, as I was, you might be a little disappointed. While it does include some gorgeous Regency Era dresses, I only counted six that were actually featured in the whole book.

The majority of it is concerned with Victorian styles. This is likely due to the relative scarcity of Regency gowns that actually remain in existence, but just be aware that this book is largely focused on the later fashions of the century.

On average, there are two pages dedicated to each piece of clothing, usually including a detailed photo, a front and back sketch of the entire garment, and a short but not too short description. One of my favorite pages discusses fabric patterns and trims. Besides dresses, there are also many accessories, men's jackets, shoes, outerwear, and even a few corsets.

The details on some of these garments are absolutely stunning My one complaint is that while we are sometimes given both up close and full view photographs, most of the time there is only a simple line drawing of the full garment. I'm not sure why this decision was made, but when I go through the book I often find myself wishing that they had given us full view photographs of all the outfits, because they all deserve it.

In any case, this is a gorgeous, well-researched, and well-photographed book that will please all lovers of history, costume dramas, and fashion in general! An absolutely beautiful book on 19th century clothing.

Nineteenth-Century Fashion in Detail

It includes garments from the regency period of the early 's and through all the various eras. Both women's and men's garments are included although women's predominate.

I do wish there had been more views of most of the outfits. Seeing the back, side and front as well as close up of details would have added much. I do realize the cost involved in so many more images would leave the book too expensive.

I love the fabric of the cover photo. I hope to find something similar I can use to make a Victorian bustle dress. This book has many ideas I am considering incorporating. Thanks, site. Love the minute details that are discussed and illustrated.

Photos are great. This is fantastic book for the dedicated student of costumes or fashion history. The photographs of actual garments are beautiful and very useful.
