About this Item

(FASHION, MEN'S - 19TH CENTURY). DEVERE, Louis and James H. Chappell, eds. THE GENTLEMAN'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE OF FASHION, AND COSTUMES DE PARIS. Philadelphia: James H. Chappell, December, 1852 (- October, 1861). An incomplete run, 53 issues spanning eight years. Beautifully illustrated with a total of 111 hand-colored men's fashion plates, including 4 double fold-out plates and 13 triple fold-out plates, and another 122 pattern plates, which are printed in line on thin paper. The issues are incomplete and spotty, and partially disbound - lacking backstips, with boards detached - in two quarto volumes. Vol. 1 is a little uneven and some plates have notations on the reverse. Vol. 2 is internally quite clean and attractive. The effort expended to save and organize these issues when they were originally bound, probably around the time of publication, is still justified; they offer an interesting and varied survey of mid nineteenth-century men's costume, with practical information on their manufacture. Nineteenth Century publications devoted to men's fashion are rare. Bookseller Inventory # 85580
