A great book about ordinary Americans and fashion from 1840 to 1900 with superb photographs catalog the styles for each decade and extremely complete research tells the stories of the clothing.  The book is mainly about the women's fashions as much more has been written and preserved but men and children's clothing styles are covered as well.  A glossary explains many terms used in the fashions of the times.  The Civil War period is well represented with exquisite descriptions of the costumes and accessories.


This book is in new condition complete with jacket, measures 8 3/4' by 11 1/2' and contains 592 pages.  The ISBN is 0-87338-512-8.  The author is Joan Severa and the book's publisher is the Kent State University Press.  This book would make a fine reference book for anyone interested in Civil War re-enactment events.
