It seemed as though he had just awakened from some strange sleep and found himself sliding down a slope in the middle of the night, on his feet, shivering, recoiling in vail, on the very brink of an abyss.

In the gloom he distinctly saw an unknown man, a stranger, whom fate had mistaken for him and was shoving into the gulf in his place.

For the gulf to be closed, someone had to fall in, he or the other.

Les Miserables, Victor Hugo

Two fantastic pairs of spectacles dating to the second half of the 18th century. Top is a pair dating to 1750-1785, bottom is a pair from 1785-1800. 

Both pairs would serve as great inspirations for a steampunk look.
