Finnish costume plate, two images from a single plate. From 'Travels in various countries of Europe, Asia & Africa' by Edward Daniel Clarke (1769 – 1822), English mineralogist and traveller. In 1799 Clarke set out with a Mr Cripps on a tour through the continent of Europe, beginning with Norway and Sweden, whence they proceeded through Russia and the Crimea to Constantinople, Rhodes, and afterwards to Egypt and Palestine. After the capitulation of Alexandria, Clarke was of considerable use in securing for England the statues, sarcophagi, maps, manuscripts, etc., which had been collected by the French savants.
