Sinossi: What gown would you wear to be the belle of the ball in April 1811? Choose any month and any year between 1809 and 1820 to find the most fashionable attire to wear in Regency England. Fashions in the Era of Jane Austen is a pictorial of images collected from Ackermann's Repository of the Arts. Find splendid illustrations of morning, evening, riding, and walking dresses with the accompanying accessories: hats, shoes, scarves, jewelry, parasols and more. Over two hundred and seventy-five exquisite illustrations with the original accompanying descriptions as they were published over two hundred years ago. Discover the voice of the past through the written language of each narrative. Fashions in the Era of Jane Austen covers twelve years of fashion, the last two years of the Georgian period (1809-1810) and the entire ten years of the Regency period (1811-1820). The pictures alone make this a great book, even if one doesn't read a word of the fashion descriptions.
