Earle, Alice Morse  
Costume of Colonial Times
 Picture
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1894 New York.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "..That the value of tis work as a book of reference may be complete, I have endeavored to give the price of materials and garments at various dates, especially in early colonial days; also to show when certain attire came into fashion - when it became no longer the vogue. When I have written of garments or stuffs familiar to us at the present day, it was because there was something in their old-time form or use that varied from that of our own day; or because some incident of interest was attached to their assumption. Sometimes it was simply to show how ancient in use they were. In the main, the fashions of the colonies were the fashions of old England; when a garment or headgear came to be the mode of London, scarce a year elapsed ere Philadelphia, Boston, and Newport gentry were also bedecked therewith. Still this rule had exceptions. When all French and English dames wore 'commodes, ' I do not doubt that women of wealth in New York and Virginia thus dressed their heads, but I have not been able to find a single proof of the fact, not even an instance of the use of the word on this side of the Atlantic. I have found, however, that English authorities on costume have made many errors in dates; for, of course, no modish garment would be advertised in a New England newspaper eight or ten years before it was worn in London. I have therefore paid slight heed to modern English and French writers on dress, but have preferred to city my own examples of the use of words, and to shape my own definitions; I note and define over one hundred terms not given by Planche, the authority on English costume.." xiv + 264 pages + 8-page listing of additional books by this publisher. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear for a book of this age and genre; text pages clean; binding still tight. No dust jacket.
