"In 1562, Francois Deserps published a book entitled, in English translation, "A Collection of the various styles of clothing which are presently worn in countries of Europe, Asia, Africa, and the savage islands, all realistically depicted." Based on the information that Deserps claimed to have received from travelers about the garments worn by people from distant lands, this collection has been called the earliest book published in France on ethnography and costume. It was originally intended to be read by children, specifically the eight-year-old Henry of Navarre, the future King Henry IV. In it, clerics, aristocrats, soldiers, peasants, men, women, and even a few monsters are pictured in 121 woodcut illustrations, each accompanied by four lines of verse describing some aspect of the person or clothing portrayed." "This beautifully produced facsimile edition includes full-color illustrations, translations of the verses and the original introductory material by Sara Shannon, and an introduction by Carol Urness, curator of the James Ford Bell Library, providing context on clothing and fashion of the sixteenth century."--Jacket

"The James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota opened in October 1953. It was the gift of University alumnus and regent James Ford Bell, a Minnesota philanthropist and founder of the General Mills Corporation. Its purpose was "to establish an historical background and knowledge of this great economic force [trade] and the part is has played and still plays in the development of the present-day world." (James Ford Bell, 1954) Trade inevitably led to cultural exchange, forever transforming both sides of every encounter. The photographs selected here reflect the perspectives and transformations informed by trade around the globe prior to ca. 1800 CE."--Jacket
