Text for plate XVII:
"Though simply severe in style (which the richness of material demands), this shoe doubtless repeats the hue and texture of the gorgeous sweeping folds of the costume it was made to match. The paste button is neat and good, and too modest in size to publish its own falure in competition with the jewels due to the rank and toilette of the wearer. . ."
