Historic Costume: A Chronicle of Fashion in Western Europe 1490-1790.

By Francis M. Kelly & Randolph Schwabe.

Published by B.T. Batsford, London, 1929. Second Edition. Hardback book with gilt titles. Large 8vo. pp xv, 305, [30]. 76 plates (some colour), plus 125 text figures.

A wonderfully illustrated second edition of this history of fashion in Western Europe. This edition, revised and enlarged, includes both full coloured plates and monochrome illustrations, including illustrations by Randolph Schwabe. Schwabe is most famous for his work as an official war artist in World War One and many of his works are still on display at the Imperial War Museum.

CONDITION:
Good condition. The boards and spine are good with just a couple of very small white dots to the cloth. All contents present. A little browning to endpapers, some light spotting to half title page and just a touch to the tile page but all text good and clean throughout. Name written to the top of the preface page. Overall a good copy.
