Racinets Full-Color Pictorial History of Western Costume PDF

Auguste Racinet

In the 1870s and 1880s, noted artist, art and costume historian Auguste Racinet (1825-1893) edited a multivolume series documenting the history of world dress, furnishings and artifacts. The result was one of the most remarkable and comprehensive pictorial collections ever produced. Now 92 meticulously rendered full-color plates - nearly all those pertaining to Western clothing, 900-1800, in the rare, original edition of Le Costume Historique - have been superbly reproduced in the present volume and are available for the first time at an affordable price.Over 950 clearly detailed, costumed figures present a magnificent panorama of clothing styles worn in major countries of Western Europe over a thousand-year period - ranging from 9th-century civil, military and religious garb to the Empire look of feminine fashion in the early 1800s. Included are figures representative of a variety of social classes, professions and nationalities - from medieval warriors, noblemen and merchants to Spanish clerics and nobility, Italian courtiers, Polish merchants and French soldiers, high-born ladies and demure middle-class damsels.Costumes displayed are equally diverse: bizarrely ornamented helmets and jointed suits of armor from the Middle Ages
