This is a series of prints on the Saxon Army, published by Napoleon
On-line. It was originally published in 1810 with the title “Abbildung
der neu organisirten Königlich-Sächsischen
Armee in kolorirten Truppen auf 20 Blättern dargestellt” These
illustrations represents the new uniforms of the Saxonian
army that were being issued beginning in 1810.
Christoph Bommer is the probable artist, as the second plates shows
a "C.B." and the plates of this Saxon series are similar to other Bommer
plates. More info on Bommer can be found in Napoleon's
Last Grande Armée written by Alfred Umhey.
