"On English Costume"- Vintage Find!

I found this lovely little book, On English Costume, at a second hand store, and so I just had to share! 

It's a little costume guide for stagecraft, published in 1931. 

It begins with the 5th century and goes all the way into the 20th, with charming illustrations for stage costumers to get the proper "lines" for each period. 

I have to confess, though... I found a few of the illustrations very amusing. 

I mean, look at his face. 

Also, that chap has a monocle. Very dashing. 

There's even a section in the back for assuring accuracy in materials! 

It's a lovely little resource and I'm glad to have it. Hope you enjoyed taking a peek at it as much as I do myself!
