Paul Lacroix was a 19th-century French author whose books covered a broad set of topics, including some controversial. Lacroix wrote about ballets, costumes, romance, masquerades, heraldry, religion in the military, and the history of prostitution. He also wrote a book, “Sciences and Letters of the Middle Ages,” which covers the studies of alchemy and the occult sciences, as well as an important chapter on heraldry. Engravings depict monsters, bizarre animals, dragons, deformed humans, torture scenes, scalping, maps, flags, and more!

 

This 1875 tome of ‘Costumes of France’ features dozens of chromolithograph engravings depicting French costumes and clothing from 1700 through the end of the 18th-century. Perhaps the most desirable is the view of the public promenade on the French Royal Palace garden!
