Richard Corson

Fashions In Eyeglasses is the most comprehensive history of eyewear ever to be published in English, now reissued in an enlarged and updated edition. Richard Corson worked extensively in the theatre and his Fashions book have long been regarded as definitive works. This fully revised and updated work, available for the first time since the eighties, is an indispensable source book for anyone who works in fashion or theatre, as well as being a fascinating journey through time for the historian and general reader alike. Beginning with the Italian cardinal who riveted two magnifying lenses together, the story progresses to include spyglasses, opera glasses, monocles, Morrissey’s N.H.S. specs, Sven’s Armanis, and much more. This edition has been updated by fashion historian Caroline Cox, one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject. Fully illustrated with over 100 illustrations and plates, Fashions In Eyeglasses is sure to attain the status of Corson’s other invaluable and indispensable books.
