    ... have you tried http://www.uniformology.com? They sell books and CD's worth of what you're looking for, including the Second French Empire.

    Also, perhaps Osprey could help. From their Men-at-Arms series:

    The French Army of the Franco-Prussian War 1870-71, Imperial Troops
    French Army 1870-71 Franco-Prussian War, 2 Republican Troops

    both by Stephen Shann

    I hope this helps.

        ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
        All human ills he can subdue,
        Or with a bauble or medal
        Can win mans heart for you;
        And many a blessing know to stew
        To make a megloamaniac bright;
        Give honour to the dainty Corse,
        The Pixie is a little shite.
