A Complete View of Dress and Habits of the People of England
by Joseph Strutt 1862. [large selection of plates from this book]
[Found at the Université de Liège (Belgium) -
Collections Artistiques (Florilège) website

et la théière tristesse du sucrier
in L'Opinion (magazine) 1877
[No idea what site it comes from.]
Die vier Weltteile: Afrika - late 16th century.
This comes from the eclectic set of images at the

I know it comes from a pdf from one of the South American repositories -
if you only knew how much time I spent not finding suitable/sufficient material to make posts on subjects from South America and particularly Asia and Africa....well, anyway - if anyone ever has any suggestions about esoteric and rare book or print image sites or ideas even that pertain to these areas of the world, please don't be shy in passing on the details.

Best wishes to all !
