Royal and Historic Gloves and Shoes
Methuen & Co., London 1904 - One of the most extraordinary compilations of accessories ever published. With a pair of Shakespeare's gloves and also those of Henry VIII, also his gauntlet and hawking glove. Queen Elizabeth's gloves and buskins are here too, as well as a profusion of fascinating period wear, mostly English, a few Spanish pieces ( and a pair of American moccasins makes an appearance). Well written text + 46 plates of gloves and 32 plates of shoes, black and white and some color. Many plates show several pieces. This is a very good copy in red cloth with gilt titles and front cover device of a medieval shoe, with the gilt still bright. The right edge of the back cover, toward the top, has been abraded a bit. Very clean inside just a few tiny brown spots here and there. 13" high X 10" wide, 110 pages. A great copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
