Late in the 18th century, English children's apparel began to look different from that worn by their elders. The reason, says writer James Laver in his introduction, is that someone finally realized children were different! This engaging book records those changes, with illustrations depicting styles at five- or ten-year intervals, from 1775 to 1920. 32 black-and-white illustrations.
Unabridged reproduction of English Children's Costume Since 1775, originally published by A. & C. Black, Ltd., London, 1930.
