Top row, third from the left are Koreans, it also seems there are Portuguese, Dutch, Germans, and other interesting woodcuts, too.

There is also the 世界人物図巻/ A Number of People of the World(?), from 1714(?).

There's an image of women defending a castle, and it looks like the one in the far right corner is wearing a garderobecorps thing. (thanks [livejournal.com profile] catsidhe)

So I don't forget, there might be a better image in this book.

From the 1897 Devonshire House Ball,


There are a few more on the website, but I'm too tired to be bothered.

A book online that I can (I think) cross off my list:

Auteur : Desprez, François
Titre : Recueil de la diversité des habits, qui sont de present en usage, tant es pays d’Europe, Asie, Affrique & Isles sauvages, le tout fait apres le naturel.
Édition : A Paris : De l’imprimerie de Richard Breton, 1564
http://www.bvh.univ-tours.fr/Consult/index.asp?numfiche=65

Has two Muscovites, and a mysterious lady with a strange hat.

There are a few other books I want to try and find, but they're relatively obscure.

Thanks to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] mmcnealy, there two illustrations by Sigmundt Heldt on Bildindex, although not of Balts, they're still pretty cool.

As for Adelhauser, the other mystery 16th century artist, it seems that he was Hans Adelhauser, famous for a painting that was later engraved as a map of Grodno. I do wonder if there is something else I'm missing, since even in the enlarged version of that map I can't see any women. I hope that more of his artwork survived as well.
