Working is killing me at the moment so I haven't been able to post of late, hopefully "Thanksgiving" will prove to be the watershed as I then switch into Xmas mode and will have a lot of blogging to catch up on but in the meanwhile here is a real treat, a truly great find on Gallica by Robert Burnham.
Uniformes des Régiments de Hussards sous le Premier Empire, a 2 volume set comprising of 128 watercolor plates by René Louis. It's not often you come across something new like this so enjoy.
You can expand the flash viewers below to full screen for best viewing or click the links to go to Gallica. A word of warning Gallica can be slow at times, so if an image doesn't appear be patient, also the images are 'progressive' downloads so the image amy appear fuzzy at first and then get sharper as it completes downloading.
