UNIFORMS OF THE RUSSIAN ARMY IN THE ERA OF THE ANCIENT TZAR
Compiled at Saint Petersburg during the years from 1837 and 1851, the Historical Description of the Clothing and Arms of the Russian Army has had an enormous impact and great importance for the study on the history of Russian costume and uniformology development over the past centuries. The original is based on a great quantity of archival documents and contains 4000 colored and b/w illustrations. It is composed by 30 or 34 volumes (1st edition 1-30, St. Petersburg, 1841-62, and 2nd edition Vols. 1-34, St. Petersburg - Novosibirsk - Leningrad, 1899-1948). The topics discussed start from the early czars until the late 19th century.
This volume is devoted to the Russian army uniforms under the reign of the ancient Tzar of the 17th century and includes 110 plates: we revised and colored many of the images so far available just in black and white, as well we found some rare color plates with the collaboration of private collectors. These, together with the first ever English translation, make our collection exclusive and of great value.
