Abstract:

This quick and ready reference thoroughly defines thousands of words associated with wearing apparel. Arranged alphabetically, the items of clothing cited were worn in principal countries of Europe and span nearly 2,000 years of fashion history--from the onset of the Christian era (first century b.c.) to the beginning of the reign of George III (c. 1760). From abacot, hacketon, helm, jipocoat, and jump, to xainture, ysgyn, zatayn, and zibelline, this unique and comprehensive book--profusely illustrated with over 1300 detailed line drawings of subjects--will be a useful guide for fashion and cultural historians, writers, designers, and anyone interested in the history of fashion. Unabridged republication of A Cyclopaedia of Costume or Dictionary of Dress, originally published by Chatto and Windus, London, 1876. Over 1300 black-and-white illustrations. - Publisher description.
