The above is a link to the French Bibliothéque National's Gallica site and a digitized item called "Military uniformes...". No other bibliographic information is available, but it is obviously a tailor's notebook ranging from uniforms of King William IV's reign through the new tunics of 1856. Much is on diplomatic uniforms, Royal Navy, court dress, lords lieutenants, embroidery, and the like, but there are nice bits on army uniforms, including militia. Some 83 pages.

Here's the new uniform for Rifle regiments in 1856:
