Ashelford, Jane. The Art of Dress: Clothes and Society 1500-1914. London: The National Trust, 1996.
This beautiful book is certainly an excellent source of imagery, spanning various types of sources, including many full color images of original paintings. However, because it spans such a vast period of time, its usefulness for any specific period is limited, though it is a good wider fashion history text. It is not instructional. It contains both color and monochrome images. It contains a bibliography and extensive notes.
