The one, that traditional practice may be duly observed, the other, that the writer may make suitabte apology for what he has done or perchance fittingly acknowledge the assistance given him by his friends. The second, is the reason for this preface. It would be presumptuous to present this book as aH istory of Costume. It attempts no such colossal task1. It is equally absurd to claim for it a thorough, technical, psychological treatment of any one period or group of periods. It makes no such boast. There has been in the last decade a remarkable awakening to the relations which exist between man and his works, between the mind and its expression in material objects, and also to how absorbing or dominating ideas and interests colour, if not determine, the entire externalized thought of man in religious, political and social life. It is this that makes history live, that makes psychology a vital thing and Art a quality essential to full human expression and inseparable from human life. This is the thought the author has in mind in the selection, analysis, and treatment of such European periods as have most directly influenced.our development and that illustrate perhaps, most clearly, the principles which are not only concerned in the development of style in clothes, but in that of the allied arts as well.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
