Plates depicting the costumes and fashions from Italy, Southwestern Germany, Germany, France, Switzerland and Austria. The costumes illustrated range from early christian through to the 19th century. All of the plates are numbered and likely have been cut out and removed from Adolf Rosenberg's "The design and Development of Costume" c.1925. The sequence of numbers is possibly irrelevant due to the plates having been removed from the original publication.
