THE ILLUSTRATIONS

IInterspersed throughout the book there are over 200 prints, maps, diagrams and facsimile documents, culled from sources across Europe and the United States.

Each image has been scanned at a high resolution and then digitally corrected before being proofed prior to printing. While we take great pains to remove any blemishes or marks, we take care to retain the original patina of each image, not over cleaning, so that they retain their original feel and look.

The pictures include original hand-coloured material from publishers proofs by kind permission of the Getty family library at Wormsley.

In addition there are a series of 34 etchings, originally published by John Booth, which have been beautifully coloured by renowned water colourist Peter Frith, to match the originals.

There is also a remarkable selection of sketches and Napoleonic satires from the Anne S K Brown Library.

We have also thoroughly researched Siborne's letters and papers in the British Library for sketches and diagrams from his correspondents.

The famous panorama of the battlefield published by John Booth will be tipped into the book, as will the plan of the battle from Jones , a battle panorama from Mudford and a stunning etching of Daniel Maclise’s panel of Wellington meeting Blucher.
