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.
