This magazine is a treasure trove for Victorian fashion researchers. It has illustrations of hair styles, children’s clothing, walking and carriage dresses, over skirts, and dress trims. The every-day dresses section includes a little pattern for a Greek Paletot, which they also call an opera-cloak or wrap. It also has a couple of crochet patterns. Plus it has many Victorian stories and articles, and a musical score. The pages are numbered 249 - 306, plus 2 pages of ads at the end, and 8 pages of illustrations and 2 of music at the beginning.

It’s been well read (make that, scruffy along the edges, with some bent corners). A previous owner’s name is written across the top of the cover. There are a few pencil markings.

I was going through my antique fashion magazine stash, and found some duplicates. This is a whole (as far as I can tell) issue of Peterson’s Ladies National Magazine, for April 1872, vol. LXI, no. 4. There are NO color plates (except for one orange dress jacket; does that count?), but many black and white engravings. Well, not white. The paper has aged to a yellow-tan.

-- If I can ship multiple-item orders cheaper than my posted rates, I'll refund any excess postage over $1.00.

Thank you for looking!
