E. Butterick & Co's Summer Catalogue 1875 [catalog of patterns for ladies' and children's clothing]
Softcover 4to, 32pp. Fully illustrated with "thumbnail" pictures of the designs on offer. Good to Very Good condition with bumping to corners, modest intermittent soil, creasing and general handling wear. This copy from the Cincinnati, Ohio area with listed distributor and agent, Geo. W. Willard. Graphically arresting fashions floating ghostly on the pages—a great reference for historical fashion and costume design, with hundreds of variations on traditional articles (skirts, dresses, shirting, cloaks) and particular designs for caps, undergarments, aprons, sleeves, chatelaines, bonnets, and other period pieces.
