Notes
Content : Title from folder.

Content : Written on border: "Mar. 1859" Printed on border: "The corset tournure is a novelty which is highly recommended. While serving the purpose indicated by its name, it forms an effectual support for the skirts. We also illustrate a skirt supporter, the extreme lightness and simplicity of which commends it to public favor. It consists of a girdle of three parallel slips of watch-spring steel, furnished with a slide so as to be readily adapted to the size of the wearer; this, instead of the person of the wearer, receives the pressure of the girding; small protuberances projecting from the girdle serve as points of supports for the skirts." Includes additional text.
