I have just preordered this book:

Hopefully, it will be a cracker.

And after my slagging off of Gareth Glovers Waterloo Archive III, I have preordered Volume IV

I rediscovered a book I read a few years ago and found very entertaining.

Dancing into battle. "A social history of the battle of Waterloo"

A good read

Collections of complete works

Quite some time ago, I came to realize that this forum and its many threads is a wealth of information of the Napoleonic Era, because of the many knowledgeable and generous contributors. I look forward to the next instalments and tidbits of information especially of the artists like Detaille, Rousselot, Orange and Moreau to name a few.

Now, I ask if any one is aware of books of these and the many other Napoleonic artists, that are complete collections of their works.

I have Detaille’s L’Armee Francasie and familiar with Knotel’s works in Elting’s Napoleonic Uniforms tombs and even with the latest collection of Rousselot’s prints, but as is often the case these though exhaustive are not definitive collections of the artists’ works. Is finding a complete collection of Eugene Lepiepve, Raffet, Hourtulle and Jouineau, artists of then and now like throwing paint against the wall where nothing comes of it?

Regards
WCBT

Complete works by these artists is a waste of time trying to find because they worked mainly on commissions of single or multiple illustatiions from different sponsors, both publishers and private. Anyway could you imagine Knotel, Rousselot & Benigni's as complete works ? you would need a lot of money, room and sturdy bookshelves for a start as their works are 'collectively' in the tens of thousands!

Paul, Sorry it’s taken so long to respond to your last post... distractions at work and home.

Many thanks again for your contributions. As always, you come through with flying colors with the list of links as an option to my inquiry (so ill conceived as it was)

Best regards,

WCBT

I use this. You can register the first 250 books for free. After that it costs a little money. I paid $25 for a lifetime membership. THere are discussion groups for literally every topic out there. It also has a good book recommendation selector. Every book has it's own page which links to Amazon,abebooks and Barnes & Nobles. It will tell you the closet library that will have a particular book. I highly recommend it!

I use my bookshelves, storage cabinets, and my often forgetful mind. Sometimes that leaves me wondering where I last left a book I now wanted to look at, but then I also run across old friends that I should take another look through their pages...

Sincerely,

Many thanks Legate, I will have a close look at it, it seem quite similar to the one I' m testing.

battles (or campaigns) between France and Great-Britain ?

(Hondschoote 1793, Tourcoing 1794 ..etc)

Hi,
If you do nothing else in your life you have already achieved the highest of recognition for your posting of the Gallica links to E. Fort etc.

I have spent a considerable amount of time downloading all i could find on this site and have already started to clean up the images and re-assemble the books.

Fantastic site, thanks eternally for the heads up.
