Nineteenth Century Fashion In Detail

I recently came across this in my bookcase with no recollection of how it got there. Must have been my birthday and it was overshadowed by the Kyoto book. Or it could be my books are breeding on their own while I'm not looking (if only!)

It has all kinds of great details on men's clothing I can use for myself. I think I will copy a pair of cossack trousers and use them to go with my 1820's tailcoat. Too much stuff, too little time.... And not to mention the Russian coat lined with tawny brown wolf fur!!
