Description: Racinet, Auguste. LE COSTUME HISTORIQUE; CINQ CENTS PLANCHES…. Paris: Firmin-Didot et Cie., 1888. 6 vol. Folio (16.25" x 11.25".) Illustrated with 500 plates on 473 sheets (in color and monochrome), with descriptive text. The first volume contains an index of the plates and a bibliography. Bound in period 1/2 levant over marbled boards, spines lettered and decorated in gilt over compartments, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Some small scuffs to spines and shelf-wear to edges, some light rubbing to some hinges but all very well-bound, contents quite clean and bright, an remarkably nice example overall given the size and weight of these volumes. Very Good. ********************************* The folio edition (a quarto edition was also produced) of this profusely illustrated work, with many striking chromolithographs. The work is an ambitious one, depicting peoples and decorations of various time-periods from around the world -- from Europe to Asia, from Africa to the Americas.
