    You did not say what you need them for but in my world it makes little difference; this is recognized as the leading source for buttons by both the average reader to the experts. "Record of American Uniform and Historical Buttons" by Alphaeus Albert when you see the cost you'll decide on using a library, however if you can afford it, it makes an excellent addition to ones' library.

    There is a series of books called Echoes of Glory that you should get. They have a Union version and a Confederate version and the books contain photos of actual Civil War artifacts (jackets, pants, flags, weapons, haversacks, personal hygiene items,....). I have used them a lot to research items for Civil War reenacting - they're awesome!

    These might have what you need.

    The Selected Civil War Photographs Collection contains 1,118 photographs. Most of the images were made under the supervision of Mathew B. Brady, and include scenes of military personnel, preparations for battle, and battle after-effects. The collection also includes portraits of both Confederate and Union officers, and a selection of enlisted men.
