Four volumes on Meiji era uniforms

Ok, it's been a long time since the last post - I finally got around to scanning the other three volumes I own for Meiji era uniforms. These are very early Meiji era uniform drawings. I believe the volumes were created for tailors to make them according to official specifications, as they're quite detailed and include measurements for things like the size of insignias. The four volumes I have are:

Navy Petty Officer Uniforms

Navy Uniforms Pt. 1

Navy Uniforms Pt. 2

Army Officer Uniforms

Hope you enjoy these, they're pretty great in terms of details and also just the sheer beauty of the drawings.
