BOOK Un Siecle de Modes Feminines ~ A Century of Women’s Fashion 1794-1894Lovely soft-cover French fashion book filled with polychrome fashion images ~ covers fashions from 1794 to 1894. Dated 1896, first edition. This is not a reproduction copy. First 20 pages of text are in French, remaining pages include approximately 400 colorful images ~ appears to have been hand bound. I had to resist the temptation to keep this book, the images would be great for framing! Measures approximately 4-5/8” width x 7-1/8” length x ¾” depth. Cover and page ends have minor creasing/slight tears, but it does not have any loose or major tears on pages ~ some pages have darkened and/or have staining but the images on those are not affected. No offensive odors. Note: I’ve tried to give samples of the darkened and clean pages (there are by far , in my opinion, more clean image pages). No offensive odors. I am not an expert on books so please be sure and email questions or concerns before bidding - I will gladly send additional information or pictures.
