This section shows the costume plates of English Fashions drawn by Hollar, Calthrop and the father and son team The Dightons which were shown in Dion Clayton Calthrop's Book English Costume and shown in this section. Each Hollar page has a brief biography of Wenceslaus Hollar.

The Hollar costume history plates specifically focus on the mid C17th century. Calthrop wrote of him - "For the dress we can do no better than look at the 'Ornatus Muliebris Anglicanus,' that wonderfully careful compilation by Hollar of all the dresses in every class of society."

The Calthrop and Dighton costume history plates specifically focus on the Georgian era of C18 and early C19th centuries.
