Fashion from Ancient Egypt to the Present Day - Mila Contini

Paul Hamlyn, 1967, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper with two short, closed and tape reinforced, tears to the head and tail of the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “The history of fashion is the history of life. For fashion is far more than the wearing of clothes; the primitive caveman with his blue paint, the Cretan ladies who left their bosoms bare, were following fashion. The hair styles on Roman statues, the social life of the Renaissance courts, even the slim-hipped, boyish figures of twentieth-century women, are largely the result of fashion.
