Narrative of a voyage in His Majesty's late ship Alceste, to the Yellow Sea ... with an account of her shipwreck in the straits of Gaspar.

Collection History

Many 19th century plate books on customs and costume came to NYPL from the founding Lenox and Astor library holdings, as well as the personal library of benefactor Samuel J. Tilden. Many of the titles chosen for digitization show dress in the context of ethnicity or nationality. Related dress materials, such as accessories and body ornamentation, are also included.
