Item description for Shoes and Slippers: 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. Shoes are not only a means of conveying status, class, and persona, but also hold the hopes, dreams, and fantasies of greater delights above. Dating from the early 18th century through to the 1880s, they show how an essentially protective covering for the foot can also be a fashion statement.

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

Snowshill Collections   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 I 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.
 
Sole Sister  Jan 19, 2008
Buy this. Gorgeous pictures, charming and scholarly text, what more can a designer, clothes lover, or dress historian ask from any book? The introduction of these pretty jewel-like volumes on Shoes and Hats provide pleasure and inspiration for designers and fashion fanciers. And the detailed inset photographs on construction makes "Shoes & Slippers", and its sister volume "Hats and Bonnets" obligatory reading for costume makers. Who knew that the Snowshill Collection held this treasure trove of costume? Hat's off to Althea Mackenzie for her terrific work on these fresh additions to the costume and fashion bookshelf.
 
Shoes & Slippers  Jul 18, 2005
Beautiful photos of a wonderful collection of 18th & 19th century footwear. A terrific reference for anyone interested in either century.
