Some plates from the historic costume book A Complete View of Dress and Habits of the People of England by Joseph Strutt (published originally in London, England, in 1862) were recently offered for auction on eBay. The owner of the auction has graciously allowed DragonBear to put the scanned images on-line for public use. If you interested in purchasing any of the individual plates, they may still be available from A. Rolband, who can be contacted at email@example.com.
