Glad I could help. I just love the Napoleonic era and the Peninsular Wars. I've a suspicion I've got a very similar image to yours in one of my history books - sadly it's at another adress so I can't check it out.


Hope your images sells - just forward usual commission rates, please!

Pas de probleme!

It will be interesting to know if you do have a similar illustration. I don't see anything on line, and can't (so far) link the subject with the engraver or publisher.

Roger, is it in a book or just a one-off print?

It has to come from a book. It is too small for anything else, and is much improved by post-processing. I have the original, mounted, from a print supplier who was himself unsure of the subject matter.

It would be interesting to find out which book it's from - but that's probably almost impossible!

Just to let you know, Maurice et al, that this engraving had the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum) stumped for an answer. When I replied they were very interested in the explanation!

Being an "expert" seems to be more a case of having a good general working knowledge of a subject and knowing how and where to look for specific answers, rather than just having an encyclopaedic memory.


You can't beat this crowdsourcing type thing to get an answer though. There is someone out there who knows all there is to know about any particular subject. Finding them is another matter.


Not that I'm much of an expert at anything really. I'm a bit of an expert on beer. I know where to find it, and which ones I like.

^Well wrought twist on "...but, teach a man to fish...". Exquisite expertise for sure!

I thought it was more of a case of "twist off"


(Those twist off crown cap bottles seem to be just making an occasional appearance here in the UK. Along with motor cars, electric lights, and the telephone they make life so much easier!)

Birds of a feather flock together.
Drunks of a kind share a similar mind.
But a dip in the Loire is a step too far.

(See what I did there?)

^ I relayed your feedback to the Vogon who wrote the poem, Ted. He's so excited that he's giving up a nascent career in on-line chick sexing, and turning to poetry full time.

See what you did there?

Vogon poetry? That probably explains why it's inSeine!


I wonder if there is a job as poetry critic on the "Chicken Sexers Gazette"

inSeine? You should consult your brother-in-Loire.

If there isn't then I want to know why. Mind you, they may be more interested in chick-lit.

I wonder who is that Vogons Meuse?


I suspect the chicken sexers would only be interested in finding Morlaix-ers.
