called "The History of Ukrainian Costume, Vol 1"
references the plates used in the below book.
Also, the Medieval Russian Ornament does include at

from Russian artists, or was a Byzantine import of the
period. Which is also useful.

- Some of the manuscripts reproduced in this Dover book can be found in digital form on-line, and seem to have been faithfully copied (within the limits of printing technology).
