    The first thing you will ask yourself is: "A book should nevertheless not belong in this section?" That is true. But since this book has a link to antique jewelry it is a very valuable (theoretical) gain for the antique jewelry collector. Therefore I thought it would be useful to post it here.
    All text is available in three languages: English, French and German. Thus, for a large number of CW viewers to be read and see.
    It is full of beautiful pictures which I can only show some here.
    It is a very large and bulky book and weighs 4.5 kg.

    Very interesting book also for antique jewelry collector/enthusiast. This book not only provides all the clothes but also the matching in time / used (peasant)jewelry.
    CONTENTS:
    Part I ? The Ancient World (Egypt, Assyria, Israel, Persia and Phrygia, Greece, Etruscan, Greco-Roman, Rome, Barbarian Europe, Celts and Gauls)
    Part II ? The 19th Century - Beyond the Borders of Europe (Oceania, Africa, Eskimos, North American Indians, Mexican Indians, South American Indians, China, Japan, India, Ceylon, Middle East, Orient, Turkey)
    Part III ? Europe 400-1800 (Byzantium, France-Byzantine, Poland, Italy, Spain, Germany, France, England, Holland)
    Part IV ? Traditional Costume Till the Late 19th Century (Scandinavia, Holland, Scotland, England, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, Hungary, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France) Part V - Patterns and Templates.
    About the Author:
    Introduction by Francoise Tetart-Vittu, head of the graphic arts
    department at the Musee de la Mode et du Costume de la Ville de Paris.
    She studied art history at the Sorbonne and is specialized in costume
    history of the 18th and 19th centuries. The author of many books on
    costume history and curator of exhibits, she lives and works in Paris.
    I hope you enjoy!!

      Elisabethan, thanks for your compliment. It has been a long time since we "spoke" to each other. How are you?
