This issue has two plates, one of Evening Dress and one of Walking Dress. The first page of the essay on costume was missing from the issue I looked at, the end of the essay, with the running title of "Costume" is on pages 209 and 210. The essay finished with the cryptic message "To be continued."
[from page 209] The silver Persian bandeau and pin, for the hair, are at this time in high request; as are also the Oriental robe and tippet.--The former consists of a flowing drapery of saffron-coloured gossamer gause, starred with silver, and emerald foil. The latter is composed of the zephyr feather, and is of demi length, rounded at the ends.
The Mizra Turban and La Brada Mantle are also articles of novel elegance. They will doubtless have a great run during the winter. For the Opera-dress we think them peculiarly [sic] calculated.--The Persian costume is at this time much adopted, in every species of decoration, and we really think it is highly advantageous to British beauty.
