Book Description Rarebooksclub.com, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 246 x 189 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1856 edition. Excerpt: .an hour-glass, and left him, chap-fallen and unfashionable, to be slowly restuffed at his leisure. The doublets are full of gaps and rents, and the sleeves of all shapes and LADY S DRESS. 253 colours, cried the critics. In the old times, said the economist, men were satisfied with fine kersey hose leather jerkin; coat, gown, and cloak of brown, blue, or pink velvet and fur: doublet of sad tawney. Merchants yielded least to the corruptions of the times; but, as to their wives, they rivalled the ladies in their caps, and ruffs, and fardingales. The ladies not only painted and rouged but used false hair of various colours, which was frequently changed without regard to consistency; their locks were trained on wire frames, and wreathed with gold and silver curiously wrought. Besides this, they wore pendant ornaments of bugles and brooches, rings and jewels. To supply the great demand for wigs women went round to buy the tresses of country girls, and in London female thieves not unfrequently decoyed children up lonely archways and robbed them of their hair. Out of doors these mountains of art were crowned with French hoods, hats, caps, and kerchiefs. The artificer s wife flaunted in her velvet hat; the merchant s wife in her French hood; and the peasant in her taffety or wool hat, lined with silk and velvet. Cawls of gold and silver network or rich glittering tinsel were not uncommon; others wore lattice caps coming to a point above the forehead. Their ruffs were of the finest cambric, stiffly starched, and often in three or four layers, and frequently covered with quaint emblems or with stars of gold and silver thread. Some were wrought with borders of openwork and others with purled lace. The ladies often wore. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781236537317
