These color plates, by Hippolyte Pauquet and his brother Polydore, reproduced directly from a rare and valuable nineteenth-century publication, depict 800 years of French fashion. Starting with the flamboyant headgear and voluminous robes of fifteenth-century royalty, the artfully rendered illustrations progress chronologically to the Empire styles of the Napoleonic era. Members of the nobility and upper classes are well represented here, with portraits of court ladies and gentlemen, pages, and chevaliers; bourgeois fashions appear as well, along with the more modest attire of peasants, chambermaids, and shepherdesses. Historic personages include King Henri IV, Madame de Pompadour, Madame Du Barry, and Marie Antoinette. This beautifully reproduced volume will serve not only as a valuable reference for professional costume historians but also as a grand treat for amateur fashion enthusiasts.
