Unlike the print of the Theatrum mulierum the figures in Hollar's work, Ornatus muliebris Anglicanus, are purely fashion plates rather than portrayals of the dresses of the classes of society and different occupations and nationalities. The second work in this volume, Septem Liberales Artes, contains seven fine engraved plates showing the liberal arts as female figures. Parthey-Pennington 1778-1803.
