Description

This volume reprints the celebrated collection of costume plates created in 1694 by noted 17th-century Dutch engraver Caspar Luyken. Executed with remarkable finesse, the superb illustrations depict a wide range of social classes: royalty, courtesans, merchants, laborers, military officers, ladies, gentlemen, soldiers, and a host of other figures representing varied races and countries. (A number of the subjects were drawn in their everyday milieu.) Among the many craftworkers and professionals depicted are a carpenter, mason, tailor, wickerworker, grocer, butcher, astrologer, physician, painter, and musician. This important book will fascinate anyone interested in clothing styles of another era.

The presenter of the collection, P. Abrahamo à S. Clara, was born Ulrich Megerle in Baden, ca. 1644. After attending Jesuit and Benedictine schools, he pursued a theological career and was appointed preacher to the imperial court at Vienna in 1677.
