This original print is in such great condition it really didn't need any fixing up. But I did anyway. Note the "V" in the lower left corner. I believe that is the signature of the artist, H Vernet.

Ladies' Monthly Museum, May 1816

I've scanned these pictures and articles from a compilation book- therefore, there is some distortion around the "gutter" area (middle of the book). Luckily, I have a very good scanner and accompanying application for it, which lessens the problems.

The scanner/printer/fax machine is really great. I dropped it when I was moving last October "CRASH! Tinkle-clunk". Goodbye lovely printer-scanner! So I bought another, exactly the same.  Not too expensive, about $150.00 with shipping.

My first ever scanner (1990), which was only a scanner! cost $2,000.00 dollars. It was a bit larger, but other than that, does not compare to my current one.

A couple from 1814. Gentleman looks like Cary Grant!
Costumes Parisien, 1814
A couple more fashion prints from Costumes Parisien, these with couples. Funny mixture of formal & informal.  That is, who would wear a straw hat and carry a parasol to a Ball?  But maybe that was the fashion then!

Gallery of Fashion, 1790-1822 Batsford Colour Books

Some scanned colour plates from the Batsford Book.  From the cover flap:

"More than half of the colour plates from this volume are taken from Heideloff's Gallery of Fashion.  His plates are among the masterpieces of the English School of aquatints; curiously little other work is known by him...
