William Henry.Pyne The Costume of Great Britain. London. William Miller. 1804 & 1808 Folio 11.5 x 15.5 ins , from a set of 60 ORIGINAL HAND COLOURED ENGRAVED PLATES, (AQUATINT),. 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 . . being old fashioned I prefer the simple and muted to the technicolour but that is personal taste . 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.

He served as a British Army officer during the Napoleonic Wars seeing some active service, but spending most of his career in the British Isles in various staff positions. Smith was also a self-taught artist, and an extremely prolific one -- by his own estimation he produced over 38,000 drawings over the years. Most of these were of non-military subjects, however over 1,400 were uniform studies, with another 3,000 containing accurate drawings of soldiers. He is also known for his Costume of the Army of the British Empire, originally published between 1812 and 1814. £125 delivered/ £85 collect. . .included here for ease
