If you are interested in the history of the fashion plates, this is covered in a recently published book, Nineteenth Century Women’s Fashion written by Felicity J. Warnes. The book follows high-style couture over a 100 year period from 1800-1900, as illustrated in 372 colour photographs of original hand coloured fashion plates, from the author’s collection. On request the author will sign the book (details to supplied by the customer) at no extra charge.
