The Galerie des Modes has been called the "most beautiful collection in existence on the fashions of the eighteenth century." Published over a 10-year period, from 1778 to 1787, its plates were elegantly drawn, accurately engraved, and exquisitely hand colored by the most celebrated fashion artists of the era. This monument to costume illustration was reproduced by Emile Lévy in Paris between 1911 and 1914. Here are 64 of the finest plates from the Lévy edition, reproduced faithfully from the originals. Selected by costume historian Stella Blum, former Curator of Costumes at the Costume Institute of New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art, they offer a splendid representation of French fashion in the late eighteenth century.The great social, economic, and political changes of the turbulent period that led to the Revolution in 1789 were reflected in its fashions: the influence on traditional women's costume of the dress of servants and country women; the exotic costumes of actresses; and the simpler, more practical English styles. Men's fashions were also affected by the English as well as by the exaggerated Italianate fashions sported by foppish "macaronis." Children's fashions include the one-piece mantelot, interesting as a forerunner of the attire of the sans-culottes. Special fashion terms, many of which have been obscured by time, are defined in a Glossary.

An amazing peek into the fashions of 1778-87! Any scholar of late 18th century pre-Revolutionary French life, and it goes without saying, clothing, as well as the historical re-enacting enthusiast, should do well to study the pages within this book. Alas, since Dover Publications has it out-of-print, it is a rare find (I did beg the company for a copy for years), but if by chance you find it at a used book store, grab it! It is well worth the investment. A treat for the eyes, makes history come to life, and encourages you to wonder... how did people wear those lovely headdresses?

I should also say that this book is invaluable for crafting -- color copying the fashion plates are perfect for decoupage, or to simply frame a favorite single image, even make several into a pattern for any imaginable use. This book should go back into print! There is just as much interest today in these glorious fashions as there is the delectable Victorians of the late 19th century. I adore it.

I tried for over a year to get a copy of this book when it was out-of -print. The same seller always kept advertising it as available, then telling me it wasn't.
I was thrilled to find that a new printing has been issued & this isa what I finally got. The book is slim, but absolutely packed with fashion plates of one of the most over-the-top periods in fashion history. Well worth getting.

What a darling little book! The price is right and you get a feel for the period of The Gigantic Hat. The names of the hats and the interesting style of the dresses guides you away from the limited view most people have of this incredible fashion period. Worth the cost. While you can look at fashion plates at most major museum sites, this is a good start to creating dress. I would love to have had more fashion plates!

Stella Blum has selected plates of 18th century fashion from the Metropolitan Museum's collection and reproduced them here in full colour.
You certinally don't get all the plates produced in the 18th century but what you get is a helpful and representitive selection. This is one of the few books where you can see actual colour plates all reproduced in a sequence like this.
If you have any interest in 18th french fashion this book is both [inexpensive] and invaluable.

About a month after I had ordered the book, I still had not received it. I contacted the company who offered it, but never receive a reply. I looked to see who else may have the book, and I saw that the company from whom I ordered it originally, still had the one book I had ordered in their stock,indicating that they never even attempted to send it to me. I emailed them to ask if they would send it if I reordered it, and I again did not receive a response. It seems that the big company that they advertise as being, is too big to pay attention to an order for one book. This company does not merit even one star, but the Amazon system won't send the email without a star acknowledgement.

I tried to buy this book twice from this vendor within a two week period, but was refunded my money instead--both times. The first time I tried my credit card number i forgot that it had been changed due to a fraud concern I got from my bank, so the transaction didn't happen. The vendor never sent me anything to explain the reason for refund. I had to call amazon customer service to find out what happened, and even then, the reason was nebulous.

I tried to buy the book again with my new number and, again the transaction was rejected. I was confused as to why this happened, but never got an explanation from vendor. I am sorry that I have to leave a negative review. I just want the book! It's out of print and my not having it is affecting my business negatively. A simple explanation email to me would have made me happy.
I will start by saying I didn't buy this from Amazon.com but rather directly from Dover Publications. So for those who've had trouble buying this book, it can be obtained. I'd also like to comment that the "review" section is not the place to air your troubles or to rate the seller. Please stick to a review of the book in order to help other readers. With that said, on to my review...

This book is one that I keep on my reference shelf and is wonderful in that the plates are in full color and are reproduced from the original 18th century French fasion plates. Most of them are from the latter part of the 18th century (1780s/90s) which is not quite the time period I'm interested in (I'm more interested in the 1750s through early 1770s), but they are gorgeous examples nonetheless. I especially enjoyed the fact that several of the plates depict Queen Marie Antoinette herself whose wardrobe I'd kill to have. I found it a little tedious having to flip back and forth to the text to read about each plate--I would've prefered a page of text next to the image. However, there's so much "eye candy" with the images, that it didn't bother me that greatly. If you're interested in historic clothing and the 18th century in particular, I fully recommend this book. For those of you who've owned the Pleasant Company version of the later American Girl Felicity Merriman doll, I believe her "town fair" outfit was reproduced exactly from one of the plates (plate 4) in which a little girl can be seen wearing an outfit identical even down to the color scheme (minus the neck ruff). As a Felicity owner and lover, that was very interesting for me to see.
