About this Item

This album of sixty costumes of court people and different subjects of the Ottoman Empire was originally drawn by Octavien Dalvimart ca 1798. It was published in London in 1802 in color with English and French captions. The new edition is extended with Turkish translation along with the original texts and drawings and it is loyal to the original except for the extended text. The album is a must for history lovers as well as a source for researchers. It depicts the last decade of the classical heritage of the Ottoman Empire on the eve of strong modernization and Westernization of the early nineteenth century. The Costume of Turkey was one of a series of six costume books published by William Miller over a four-year period. Each hand-colored plate, drawn from life in 1798 by Octavien d'Alvimart and stipple-engraved by John Dadley and William Poole, is accompanied by an explanation of the figure's role, responsibility and details of dress, written by Miller (misattributed by Hiler to William Alexander). "The drawings, from which these plates have been engraved, were made on the spot. and may be depended upon for their correctness. They have been most accurately attended to in the progress of the engraving; and each impression has been carefully colored according to the original drawing, that the fidelity of them might not be impaired."
