Synopsis: Togas, turbans, tailcoats, and top hats: The evolution of style from antiquity to 1888   Originally published in France between 1876 and 1888, Auguste Racinet’s Le Costume historique was the most wide-ranging and incisive study of clothing ever attempted. Covering the world history of costume, dress, and style from antiquity through the end of the 19th century, the great work—published in six volumes containing nearly 500 plates—remains, to this day, unique in its scope and detail.

Racinet’s organization by culture and subject has been preserved in TASCHEN’s magnificent and complete reprint, as have excerpts from his delightful descriptions and often witty comments. Volume 1 contains all the plates from Racinet’s work, reproduced in brilliant quality and showing the original’s love for detail and color. Volume 2 collects the texts accompanying the images, giving descriptions and explanations, as well as the introduction by Françoise Tétart-Vittu.

Perusing these beautifully detailed and exquisitely colored illustrations, you’ll discover everything from the garb of ancient Etruscans to traditional Eskimo attire to 19th century French women’s couture. Though Racinet’s study spans the globe from ancient times through his own, his focus is on European clothing from the Middle Ages to the 1880s and this subject is treated with exceeding passion and attention to detail.   Text in English, French, and German

About the Author: Françoise Tétart-Vittu is head of the graphic arts department at the Musée de la Mode et du Costume de la Ville de Paris. She studied art history at the Sorbonne and she specializes in the costume history of the 18th and 19th centuries.

Book Description Auguste Racinets »Le Costume Historique« ist die detaillierteste und weitreichendste Studie über die Geschichte der Kleidung, die je in Angriff genommen wurde. Dieses »grand projet« wurde ursprünglich zwischen 1876 und 1888 in Frankreich veröffentlicht - in sechs Bänden mit fast 500 Abbildungen! Es erzählt die Weltgeschichte der Bekleidung und des guten Stils von der Antike bis zum Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts und ist bis heute einzigartig in seiner Bandbreite wie in seinem Detailreichtum. Racinets Aufteilung nach Kultur und Thema wurde in diesem hervorragenden und vollständigen Nachdruck erhalten, ebenso wie Auszüge aus seinen geistreichen Beschreibungen und Anmerkungen. Band 1 zeigt alle Abbildungen des Werks in brillanter Qualität. Band 2 erläutert die Bilder und die Tragweite des Werkes. (Text dt., engl., frz.) 24 x 31,5 cm, 795 Seiten, zahlr. Farbabb., 2 Bände geb. im Schuber. Bookseller Inventory # 563080
