This study of legal dress in all European countries other than Russia and those submerged under Turkey, is the first of its kind. The author, as in his companion work on academic dress, discusses the development of the costume of judges, advocates and other officials concerned with the practice of Law.

Whether he treats of the influence of the Church on its development, or describes robes, wigs, headdress and gloves, all such matters are considered in the light of the process of time and history, for Dr Hargreaves-Mawdsley's study is not only factual but provides and illuminating commentary from a new angle on the social life of the past.
