Godey’s Lady’s Book Fashion Plates
These cover images are all made directly from just a few of the many beautifully illustrated and colored fashion plates found in the Accessible Archives collection.
Accessible Archive’s collection provides the complete run of Godey’s Lady’s Book, and is the only one containing the color plates as they originally appeared. Our search and retrieval system allows searchers to limit by “Image Type,” which includes chromolithograph, color plate and color plate fashion, as well as advertisement, cartoon, drawing, engraving, fashion plate, illustration, map, mezzotint, portrait, sheet music, table and woodcut.
Particular consideration is due to The Athenaeum of Philadelphia, The Library Company of Philadelphia, Winterthur Library, and The Chester County Historical Society, without whom this project would have been impossible. Dr. Roger W. Moss kindly permitted the use of the Athenaeum’s most important family set of Godey’s as a guidepost for this project. Many of the plates were copied from this collection.
This the full Godey’s Lady’s Book collection is available to personal subscribers as part of their membership and it can be ordered complete or in segments by libraries, universities, and other institutions.
