If you have an interest in European clothing of the late 15th and 16th centuries, you MUST read this book. Ms. Anderson's research is extensive and makes available to an "English only" reader information that can scarcely be found anywhere else. Almost without exception, English language writers on costume history ignore Spain almost completely and/or attribute Spanish (and Portuguese) styles to an imitation of Italian modes. Ms. Anderson's work makes it plain that Spain was the fashion leader, not the follower, during this period and allows us to understand Spain's importance during the Renaissance period without the distortions of protestant history and politics.

The format of Ms. Anderson's masterpiece is enormously helpful to the student of this era. The work is divided into sections dealing with men's and women's clothing. She begins each section with a narrative of men's or women's "Dress Occasions" which is wonderfully informative and then each section, which is lavishly illustrated, focuses on the elements of clothing: Hair Styles, Headgear, Body Garments, Leg Coverings, Footgear, Accessories, Moorish Garments, Outer Garments and Furs.

If Ms. Anderson's format were copied by more writers on the history of costume, the world would be a much, much better place!

And for the information of the person who have this book a 1 star review because the other reviewers didn't mention Portugal (which is indeed, NOT SPAIN), that is a flaw of the reviews, NOT of Ms. Anderson's book. She makes many references to Portugal and to Portuguese clothing. The book's focus however,is Spain. I would very much like someone with as much knowledge and scholarship, to write about Portuguese clothing history!
This is NOT a book for beginnners. It is a serious , in-depth study of Spanish clothing ( Catholic and Moorish) during the late 1400s and early 1500s. There are a few color plates, oodles of black and white photos, and wonderful sections showing common topics like "sleeves" or "hairstyles". It is wonderfully detailed with supporting information and historical references. I would recommend it for the serious costume student of both Spanish and Northern Italian styles during this era. If you are a fan of "Los Reyes Catolicos", Ferdinand and Isabella, this is your book !
Very, very good for the serious historical costumer who is interested in Spanish influence on fashion during the 16th century. Covers both male and female clothing in amazing detail. Spanish terms for clothing are easily identifiable and well defined. This is one book that no 16th century costumer should be without!
While I sympathize with the plight of finding info on Portuguese costume this book deals with Spanish costume primarily (one of the possible definitions of Hispanic). It does have bits that would be useful to costume historians interested in Portugal or Italy, especially if no dedicated book can be found, but that is not its main point at all. If you are interested in Spanish costuming for that period, however, it is probably the book to have, complemented by Carmen Bernis' "Trajes y Modas en la España de los Reyes Católicos"* vols 1 (men's costume and glossary) and 2 (women's costume).
The only thing I dislike about this book is that it is divided into sections dealing with the various garments or garment parts (sleeves, jerkins, skirts, etc). While this is an interesting and useful approach, it is hard to relate what goes with what and so encourages the mismatching of costumes by putting toguether elements from different decades or those which would not have been put toguether.
Also, bear in mind that most of the pictures are in black and white and that there no modern patterns at all in it.

"Hispanic Costume, 1480-1530" is a beautifully organized and thorough study of the costume of Spain during this period. The text and illustrations work very well together, but the arrangement of the illustrations is just outstanding. Ms. Anderson uses close-up photos of paintings, sculpture and actual costume items from the period, all organized by costume item (e.g., Women's shoes, men's cloaks). The reader experiences the rare treat of seeing several representations of the same type of item on the same page -- I can't think of a better way to gain a good visual understanding of the characteristics of various elements of costume in a single period.
This book also made me re-think the influence of Spanish costume on other parts of Europe during the 16th century -- particularly in costume in Italy. Whether you agree or not, check out this book and see for yourself.
Little to nothing in the way of scholarly source material seems to exist on Spanish costume in the late 15th/early 16th century. This book was a godsend--easy to read and full of very detailed images, which I used to great effect for my SCAdian persona and garb. I highly recommend this book for period costumers and anyone interested in Spanish art and dress.
This is an excellant resource for anyone studying Spanish or Italian costuming for 1480-1530. There are many pictorial examples provided for each costume detail examined within the text. The only thing missing is a glossary for quick reference of all the Spanish costuming terms. I highly recommend this book.
I must confess I didn't read the book, but the reviews only mention "Spanish and Italian Costumes".
For those who don't know, PORTUGAL IS NOT SPAIN!
Thank you.
