31st plate of album with 60 19th-century costume plates and 1 drawing of mostly women's historical costumes, featuring a variety of designs for traditional costumes from different parts of the world, as well as costumes for literary characters, including Esmeralda. This plate consists of a hunting costume for women, made up of a green, calf-length dress, the taille with small, golden buttons and the skirt with red-and-gold scrolling motifs, over a soft pink shirt with white ruffles in the neck and cuffs, and belted by a soft pink fabric that hangs over the woman's left leg, and a dark green jacket with lapels and cuffs made of the same fabric as the skirt of the dress. Her hair is pulled back, covered by a large, dark green hat with soft pink feathers, her hands are covered by cream gloves, one of them holding a brown riding crop, and her feet are shod with gray stockings and gray, low-heeled boots with small buttons and with dark green details.
