This first edition copy of "20,000 Years of Fashion: A History of Costume and Personal Adornment," provides readers with a detailed account of how people dressed themselves from ancient times through the 1960's. At the time of the book's publication in 1966, author Francois Boucher was the Director of the French Center for Costume Studies and the Honorary Curator of the Mussee Carnavalet in Paris. This is a very large book that consists of 441 pages full of text, illustrations, and photographs that are printed on thick, heavy-sheen paper; and because of its detailed content and the author's expertise, this work has also been used as a textbook in educational settings. It's a beautiful book, making it a stylish addition to anyone's coffee table or bookshelf, and it also makes a great gift for the history scholar, fashion enthusiast, or vintage book collector.  Specifics: * Dimensions: 11.25" x 9.25" x 2" * Weight: Approximately 6 lbs.  * Author: Francois Boucher * Publisher: Harry N. Abrams * Place of Publication: NY, USA * Year of Publication: 1966 * Hardcover.  * 441 pages.  * 1,150 illustrations in both color and black and white.  * Contains a preface and introduction by the author. * Contains a bibliography, glossary, and index.  *  An attractive brick red color with a blue label with gold writing on spine (without jacket). * In excellent vintage condition.   ** Please note: This is a vintage item that is several decades old, so some signs of use are visible. The jacket has yellowed over the years and its edges are worn. The cover itself is in great shape overall, but there are some minor signs of wear along its edges, and toward the bottom you can see that the color has a faded a little bit. However, the content pages are in excellent shape, so much so that they practically look new. Please view all of the photos, and feel free to ask any questions. More pictures are available upon request.  ** I am open to accepting any reasonable offers.  Thanks for...
