The first edition was published in 1804 with uncoloured back ground.The second edition 1808 had a partial coloured background and the third edition was in full colour . . . Pyne's plates portray a diversity of trades, occupations and services. All classes are represented from the most elevated ranks to the lowest labourer. Considerable attention is paid to each trade, giving a valuable record of British society on the eve of the Industrial revolution. William Henry Pyne is generally known as an etcher, landscape painter and author of literature. Pyne combines all three of his talents to produce a charming account which invites the reader to experience the many aspects of early nineteenth century Britain. Pyne exhibits costumes ranging from clergy and military dress to those of milk maids and coal shovellers. Pictured against the beautifully drawn and colored backgrounds, the figures come to life in their contemporary settings. Contemporary of such great character artists as Thomas Rowlandson and George Cruikshank, W.H. Pyne, in the wardrobes and dress represented here, allows us to see the manners, habits and lifestyle during the early 1800's. also at base of page The Costume of Yorkshire (1885) illustrated by George Walker included here as large aquatints of trades
