I am looking for a book, if possible with plenty of illustrations and photographs, about the history of XIX century clothing in France or Europe. It can go into the XX century, but would have to encompass the 1830's to the 1890's. I would be most interested in a book that focuses on details, examines various social levels of society and gives the story behind fashion choices. If such a book also included America, that would be great. I looked on the internet and at various Border's. Border's choices were limited where I went, and the internet seems to be giving contradicting reviews on various books. Any opinion would be welcome.
