1 Vreeland, Diana [essay] Inventive Clothes 1909-1939 (Kyoto 1975)
Kyoto, Japan Hiromo Morishita 1975 First Thus Hard Cover in Sleeve Fine Fine Book 
Oversized bound 262-page catalogue of two exhibitions: "10s, 20s and 30s: Inventive Clothes 1909-1939", held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute December 12, 1973-September 1, 1974, and "Sources of Modern Clothing Exhibition-Inventive Clothes 1909-1939" held at the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto March 25-May 25, 1975. Diana Vreeland's idea, naturally. She has contributed an essay, as have Yvonne Deslandres (in French), Mitsukuni Yoshida, and a group of Japanese historians on various aspects of the period. Worth it for the accumulated scholarship alone. Then there are the plates: dozens of them, full-size and in glorious color, of the work of Poiret, Callot Soeurs, Vionnet, Chanel, Schiaparelli, and other contemporaries. Even a chapter on the Ballets Russes. Text in English and Japanese, including profiles of the designers and a bibliography. This copy formerly belonged to Elizabeth Lawrence, master restorer at the Costume Institute for years, with her name to the binding and the slipcase, making this a marvelous association copy. Fine hardcover binding in Fine slipcase.
