One of the greatest collections of costume illustrations ever produced (c1870-80), the accuracy of detail and subtlety of color make these secondary source illustrations as reliable as the originals.

To see many illustrations from Racinet, see

Very strong in the historic and traditional clothing of countries that don't often get found in books (Poland, Persia, Russia, etc.) To see the color versions of these plates go to online. Because the hand coloring of the plates was often fanciful or inconsistent, the B&W version is in many ways preferable.
