Middle Ages / Medieval Dress

Categories: History
Written By: John

This is an update of an older post.  I have finally gotten around to labeling all the images, so I am bumping the post closer to the front of the site and have added some more links to show specific images.  This is a fun collection of small drawings by Paul Mercuri from an early to mid 19th century book, Costumes Historiques (Paris, 1850’s or 6o’s).  I received the scans from a colleague and they were quite dirty, so I have done a lot of touch-up.   Unfortunately, the resolution is not as high as I would like, but they are more than adequate for most online uses, clipart, illustrating reports and the like.

As always, these public domain jpg images are free of charge and may be used for any purpose.  Although I have put a lot of effort into cleaning spots and smudges, as well as enhancing the colors, they are still in the public domain and have no usage restrictions.  Donations for my efforts and for the costs of running this site are always appreciated, but are by no means expected or necessary.

All 130 or so items may be browsed and downloaded in the gallery.   Images may be downloaded one at a time in at least 3 different sizes, or you may download a large number at once via ZIP file by using the shopping cart feature in the gallery.  It is called a shopping cart, but there is no charge.

Here are some samples.  Go to the GALLERY to see them all.
