Publisher Description

This volume reprints the celebrated collection of costume plates created in 1694 by noted 17th-century Dutch engraver Caspar Luyken. Executed with remarkable finesse, the superb illustrations depict a wide range of social classes: royalty, courtesans, merchants, laborers, military officers, ladies, gentlemen, soldiers, and a host of other figures representing varied races and countries. (A number of the subjects were drawn in their everyday milieu.) Among the many craftworkers and professionals depicted are a carpenter, mason, tailor, wickerworker, grocer, butcher, astrologer, physician, painter, and musician. This important book will fascinate anyone interested in clothing styles of another era.
