Re: Gribeauval Field, Valliere Siege, Manson Coast

Thanks for your reply and information.

Seems I have access to the 1793 (4th edition) and An III (5th edition, listed as 1794) as well as the earlier German translation (of which I have seen a contemporary review picking on the quality of the terms used). The 5th edition has two chapters not contained in the 4th edition: XXII. De l'Artillerie volant dite à cheval & XXIII. Manoeuvers du canon de bataille (separately addressing the réglement du 1er aoút 1791).

At the end of the 4th edition there are three additional sections not in the 5th edition: Remarque, Pesanteur spécifique de quelques solides relativement à un parail vlume d'eau de pluie, etc and Table de quelques poida et mesures.

Finally, the 5th edition contains and Appendice - Supplément au chapitre XIX. This covers the other vehicles used by the artillery. In addition there are some limited remarks - less than three pages: Remarques sur les caissons Wurst et sur l'artilerie légere, dite Artillerie à cheval.

On the wheel dimensions, both contain the same table with the 5th edition moving it to the appendice.

These are (resorted by me)

De l'affût de 4 de campagne - 4 pieds, 2 pouces

De l'avant-train de 4 - 3 pieds, 2 pouces

De l'affût de 12, de 8, d'obusiers de 8 pouces et de 6 pouces - 4 pieds, 6 pouces

De l'avant-train des pieces de 12 et de 8, des caissons, chariots et haquets à bateaux - 3 pieds, 6 pouces

De grandes roues de caissons. de chariots, du chariots à canon, haquet à bateau, à nacelle, à ponton de charrette, de forge de campagne, camions, et celles de affûts de siege de 24 et 16 - 4 pieds, 10 pouces

De l'avant-train du chariot à canon, de haquet à bateau, à ponton, à nacelles, et des roues d'affûts de troupes légeres

De l'avant-train pour plaine et montagne - 2 pieds, 10 pouces

De l'affût de place pour les pieces de 24, de 16, 12 et 8 - 4 pieds, 4 pouces

De Triqueballe - 7 pieds.

Thus, 9 wheels in total (absent different fittings for a similarly dimensioned wheels).

I gather this smaller number arose from the 1792 Mason Reforms mentioned by Stephen Summerfield.

The pairing of heavy cannon with heavy howitzer and light cannon with light howitzers seems of interest in comparison. - R
