jm lent me her beautiful russian textiles book
and in doing so led me to the work of russian photographer 
sergei mikhailovich prokudin-gorskii
(i keep stumbling on more and more of his images...)

his full colour photographic survey of the russian empire dates from the early 1900s.
more from the library of congress
