Cloth, illustration on front cover. Illustrations. Some drawings of costumes are in color. From the Preface: "The intention of the authors of this book is to present in a convenient form a collection of some typical examples of peasant costume from a number of countries." "Great variety is to be expected in costumes made by peasants from materials woven by themselves and embroidered with their own designs. But while each is thus original in itself, such influences as superstition, religion, and even politics have brought about a certain similarity."
