The Austrian Army in 1798: the Uniform Plates of Tranquillo Mollo and Joseph George Mansfield

In the Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Darmstadt one can find a copy of Abbildung der Neuen Adjustirung der K.K. Armee by Tranquillo Mollo and Joseph George Mansfield. These illustrations cover the uniforms of the Imperial Austrian Army. Although there is no year of publication listed for the illustrations, based on the type of uniforms in the illustrations it most likely from around 1798. In the Colas this source is indicated as 1796-1798. The very high degree of detail of the different types of uniform, both in the front and the back opinion, makes these illustrations an invaluable source for researching the Austrian Army from the early years of the Napoleonic Wars until 1805.

These drawings originally appeared on line in German by our partner, Napoleon Online and are used with permission of the Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Darmstadt. Please note that Markus Stein holds the copyright on all of these images.
