Notes

: Printed on image: "… Here is a shoe that is said to have belonged to Queen Anne, that most indolent and selfish of sovereigns, to whom history, in accordance with its usual habit of blundering, must needs give the title 'good.' It was of satin, worked in steel, and by no means small. Another shoe of the same epoch is noteworthy from its having a worked pattern which could be put on for rainy weather. In spite of being made of brocade, with the partial heel of red leather, and a great bow at the instep, this pattern, however thoroughly it might protect the foot, is certainly ugly enough to waken wrath in any woman's heart, if compelled to wear it …" Written on border: "Jan 1891."
