Paperback, 300 pgs. From headdress to sandals, from warrior’s armor to priestess’s robes, the authentic costumes of people from all walks of life in the Roman and Greek civilizations are here pictured comprehensively and clearly. 300 finely drawn, detailed engravings (containing over 700 illustrations) show you just what was worn by the poets, philosophers, priests and priestesses, peasants, Bacchanalians, emperors, generals, Amazons, and virgins of a bygone era. Carefully copied from ancient vases and statuary by Thomas Hope (1770-1831), these engravings combine unusual clarity of style with unquestioned authenticity. Unabridged republication of the First (1812) edition.
