Overview

In this collection of rare, turn-of-the-century images, you'll find many different kinds of people from a variety of historical periods. Among its 304 images, this book contains pictures of men and women both in realistic everyday dress, and resplendent in fine jewels and clothing. Other illustrations portray amusing caricatures of people with outlandish and comical distortions. In addition to several portraits of well-known celebrities such as Shakespeare, Lincoln, and Michelangelo, this book also includes vignettes depicting a knight in full body armor and ladies riding sidesaddle on horses, as well as many images of people playing musical instruments. Collecting these chromolithographs was a popular hobby in the Victorian era, and the vivid colors in these antique cuts continue to charm and inspire artists and designers today.
