These Images are from a fabulous little book, called Historic Costume in Pictures by Braun & Schneider. The "History of Costume" or "Zur Geschichte der Kostüme" was printed from 1861 to 1880 in Munich by the publishing firm of Braun and Schneider. It was originally published as individual plates in a German magazine titled "Münchener Bilderbogen". Later, these plates were collected and bound in book form. The complete publication consisted of 125 pages, with four pictures per pages, for a total of 500 images. These plates consisted of historical dress from antiquity to the end of the 19th century. This book is an excellent resource for students who are studying the history of fashion. One must be aware though, that these illustrations have a "Victorian" perspective to their designs. The last 35 pages consists of contemporary folk dress (c.1880). I recommend a visit despite the era from which the book came. And it is available again from Dover Press ISBN 0-8109-1693-2, in an not coloured, perfect bound paperback.
