Item description for Hats and Bonnets: From Snowshill, One of the World's Leading Collections of Costume and Accessories of the 18th and 19th Centuries by Althea MacKenzie...

This book features the unique collection of costume and accessories created by Charles Paget Wade and now held at Berrington Hall in Herefordshire. Many of the items that have been specially photographed for these books have rarely, if ever, been seen by the public because of the vulnerability of the collection. These books give access to superb shoes and hats; forthcoming books will include funky buttons and beautiful embroideries. From bergeres to boaters, this book provides a unique journey through the styles of a period that saw major radical and social changes, from the French Revolution to the emancipation of women.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hats and Bonnets: From Snowshill, One of the World's Leading Collections of Costume and Accessories of the 18th and 19th Centuries?

Snowshill Collection Book  Sep 24, 2008
As a person who studies fashion and historical fashion as an avocation, I particularly like books with excellent pictures of fashions and accessories that are actually from the period and not historical plates from magazines, though I believe renderings extremely helpful. With a clear picture, one can derive better methods for recreation in historical costuming ventures. I have long been a fan of the Snowshill collection. I loved this little book. I hope there are more published. I appreciate the fine photographs, the brief and informative descriptions. The color and fabric choices of history very interesting and can spend an hour or two with one book trying to absorb every detail. I have the Shoes and Slippers book as well as the Hats and Bonnets book. They are wonderful additions to my costume library.
 
Just lovely  Jun 16, 2008
This little book contains lovely photos and info on bonnets and hats from the 18th and 19th centuries. It's a small book, and I was left wishing it contained more examples of the exquisite Snowshill collection, however, I enjoyed it greatly. Can't wait to get the other Snowshill book on shoes and slippers and hope they publish more in the future.
 
Disappointed  Feb 17, 2008
I was disappointed that there were not more hats from the 1770's. I guess many did not survive. The Shoes from Snowhill had better variety of shoes.
 
Beautiful collection...  Aug 17, 2005
Wonderful photos of the collection. After devouring all the information as well as the photos... you just have purchase the other books from the series to complete the set! Interesting background on the collector himself, in the book's introduction. A good source of information and ideas for anyone interested in 18th and 19th century headwear.
