These three images are from “Iconographie Générale et Méthodique Du Costume Du IV ͤ au XIX ͤ Siècle 1315-1815 Collection Gravée…” The engraver is Raphaël Jacquemin. All of these images illustrate the varied and long use of a waist-hung purse. The earliest is of Queens dating from 1190 to 1260. The second from c XIV is of a personage Italien d’ap. Taddeo c.addi. The third shows three ladies of the late 18th century (Regency period); one is wearing a low-slung purse on a wide band and another carries a posy, possibly in a posy holder. The condition of all is good although there is foxing of the pages. The original book binding is still present. These would make a fascinating framed collection for those interested in purses and general fashion. Each page measures 17 ins (40.2cm) x 12 ins (30.4cm). Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $21.50 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
