One of the most popular publications for women during the nineteenth century was Godey's Lady's Book. It contained poetry, musical scores, book reviews and also information about the latest Parisian fashions. It was the last word on style for the era.
There are two dolls made of light card and sixteen costumes made of glossy paper. There are party dresses, muslin and silk evening dresses, daytime wear and more. Both the dolls and the dresses need to be carefully cut out, although it is a beautiful book to keep uncut as a record of fashion from the time.
