Taken from a period French fashion magazine, La Mode Illustree, the fashion plates in this book include dresses, shoes, hats, hairstyles, furnishings, and accessories. The stark contrast between Victorian and Edwardian design is obvious when comparing these plates. An essential glossary is included so that the reader can understand the terms used to describe the plates. ( )
