Peacock's books should only be used for a very general feel of an era - if that! As all the outfits have been redrawn, the silhouettes are heavily influenced by the illustrator's time and personal eye. Books for true study and reference should use representations that are contemporary to the time period. His series of books are inaccurate and disappointing.
This is catalogue of drawings of the fashions of the west. Given that it covers the whole of recorded human history, there is not a lot of variation in the outfits. Good for the costume designer or fashion student.
