  • Chasseurs a' Cheval Trompettes 1804-1815

    I'm doing this as a favour and a link for another site, but this may be of general interest anyway

    ‘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.

      • I have been thinking, (contrary to popular belief, I do at times, think!) I have many more Rousselot plates, and I was wondering if any of you would like me to post them all. Unlike the on-line site that has posted the plates ad-hoc and with no text, I thought that if I posted the plates and text (as I have in my last post above) it would be much more helpful. Some of the text I have is only in French, but many more are in English. Don't ask me where the English text for the others have gone, because I haven't got a clue, but I think that they were accidentally disposed of ( + = )

          Yes Please, what a superb idea. Thanks in advance.

            • Right! I've ferreted out what I can find of the paperwork to the plates, most of which as I said above, I have, but one or two are totally missing ( ) but what I have I will post including the plates where the text is missing, which I will leave till last. You never know, the missing text may turn up somewhere. tomorrow will be the posting day (Friday 17th).

              • Excellent idea Paul . I hope to see even the notebooks of the master ( Guards of honor , Mamluks etc. ) and the tables always Rousselot outside of the famous set ?
                another question : the series of tables Rousselot includes several issues related to the 700 and the second empire .
                So , although this sub - forum is only " Napoleonic " you can also see those ?

                • I'm going to have to fork out for replacements

                  Sorry about the delay but whilst compiling my files I found that I can-not find/have lost some of the plates, significantly (amongst others) the Polish Lancer ones. I have looked everywhere, I even asked if I could have a look up in the loft of my X's house, but she ominously said that she had had it cleared out some time ago

                  Here we go with the Lucien Rousselot plates that I have.

                  For continuity, please refrain from posting on this thread until I have finished. This is quite a big undertaking so will take quite a bit of time to complete. I will also post some other pictures by the same author.
