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.

Reprint of plates from the 1970 reprint by Den Freuden des Hauses fotokop, Darmstadt, Germany, of Neu-Eröffnete Welt-Galleria, originally published by Christoph Weigel, Nuremberg, Germany, 1703.
