1799-1800. Züricher Bilderserie

In the Graphic Collection of the Zurich Central Library, there are four interesting leaves, which are issued in the stock as colored etchings. The four leaves provide infantrymen, cavalrymen and chariots of the armies that operated in 1799 and 1800 in Switzerland. Below the links to the four Overviews on the website of Prints and Drawings:
