Edinburgh, David Douglas, 1900
'The sixty-three ladies' shoes now illustrated have all belonged to and been worn by ladies of the 19th century. They have been most carefully selected to illustrate the variety and change of fashion during that period.' Each page contains three nearly life-sized shoes except for a single shoe on frontispiece and last plate, which depicts Madame Cerri's ballet slipper.
Chromolithographed illustration of a pair of Ballet Slippers, printed with gold and silver inks, framed and glazed, overall size: 37cm by 52cm.
