Okay, so this isn’t clothing, but it is some of Carlisle’s possessions from the U.S. Civil War, when he was performing the speediest amputations he plausibly could. The surgeon’s kit includes scissors, needles, sutures, bullet forceps, several types of bone saws, knives, and other instruments primarily used for amputations. Binaural stethoscopes such as this one (circa 1860) weren’t very popular in the United States until after the war, but I think it’s safe to say that Carlisle would always want the latest and best technology, even if he really didn’t need it. And then the books… I actually have no idea what books these are, but just for fun let’s say that the largest one is A Treatise on Hygiene with Special Reference to the Military Service
by Surgeon General of the U.S. Army William Hammond, since he probably would have had that. The slender volume in the middle is the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman (both because I think Carlisle would enjoy poetry- I imagine him really liking long narrative poetry like Scott’s Lady of the Lake, etc- and because Whitman’s was a new type of poetic style that I think would have intrigued him- and I seriously doubt he would have been scandalized by the subject matter); and the one on top is The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table by Oliver Wendell Holmes, since he definitely needed something amusing. Poor man, with his piles of sawed off limbs.
