Regency Era fashion - Ackermann's Repository 1811

This is my favorite Ackermann's Repository fashion plate for 1811


This is my 3rd installment of fashion plates from
Ackermann's Repository - Regency era magazine. 


Ackermann's Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, 
Manufacturers, Fashion and Politics.
was a popular publications in England from 1809-1829. 
(The 1829 issues were printed as "Ackermann's Repository of Fashion".)
I have found the articles and illustrations to be a fascinating glimpse into that time period.
One of my favorite ongoing series in the magazine are the fashion plates.
Each monthly issue usually included 2 Fashion plates, 
giving on average a total of 24 Fashion plates for the year.

Though the magazine was published monthly;
specially bound volumes were available from Ackermann's.
These "bound" book versions, consisted of a 2 volume set 
for each year it was in publication.


Ackermann's Repository "Bound" Series 1
ran from 1809 - 1815 
with a total of 14 Volumes for Series 1

Series 1 Vol 5 was Jan - June 1811
Series 1 Vol 6 was July - Dec 1811
Series 1 Vol 7 was Jan - June 1812
Series 1 Vol 8 was July - Dec 1812
Series 1 Vol 9 was Jan - June 1813
Series 1 Vol 10 was July - Dec 1813
Series 1 Vol 11 was Jan - June 1814
Series 1 Vol 12 was July - Dec 1814
Series 1 Vol 13 was Jan - June 1815
Series 1 Vol 14 was July - Dec 1815

Today I will be posting the fashion plates for the year 1811.
Series 1 Vol 5 was Jan - June 1811
Series 1 Vol 6 was July - Dec 1811

 I hope you enjoy!

Oh how I love the fashions of this time period.  
Yes, I know they could be uncomfortable and hot at times; but there still is something 
so romantic about all the lush fabrics, laces and frilly undergarments.

Here are a few description of the 1811 Ackermann fashion plates,

  4. Thanks so much.
    I love antique prints and the faces on these are so sweet. I'm thrilled that they have survived 200 years and are getting a new life all over again.

    Cheers,
    Evelyn
