Summary

Summary

A reprint of a 1928 guide to designing stage costumes that accurately (or at least conventionally) portray any period and nationality. The stone age gets little attention, since they seem not to have worn much, but costumes from the near and far east, and classical, medieval, and modern Europe are described and sometimes illustrated.
