Combining the works of the classic nineteenth-century illustrators Auguste Racinet and Friedrich Hottenroth with an authoritative modern text, this book is a study of the rich vocabulary of style through the ages.

Subjects are presented first by chronology and then by subject, so that illustrators, historians and students alike can choose to follow the development of fashion through the centuries, or study individual styles, items and accessories.
