Describes what the Victorians wore, the fancy materials at one end of the spectrum, and the tightlaced sobriety of mourning apparel at the other. Examines both high fashion imports from Paris and more modest everyday wear, and explores the social backdrop to clothing during Britain's great age of industry and empire. Well illustrated, most in color.
