Second edition, expanded, of a set of French Revolutionary plates for the instruction of the cavalry. Comprising over one hundred and fifty copper-engraved plates showing cavalry horses, equipment, and manoeuvres, the present work follows a smaller publication by Magimel of the same title, issued in ‘An septième’ (1798-9).

From the library of the United Service Club, the foremost military club in London founded in 1815 and disbanded in 1978.

Not in Mennessier de la Lance.
