First edition. James Thiriar (1889-1965) was a prolific artist who painted and drew extensively military scenes, particularly uniform studies. In 1938 he was commissioned by the Belgian King to design the new uniforms of the Royal Guard. His design, inspired by the uniforms of the gendarmerie before 1914, was a great success, much admired by the King and people of Belgium. From the library of the late H. J. Wijsman, with his handsome bookplate, incorporating the header ?1815?, the Napoleonic Royal Seal, and a miniature shadow-picture of a battalion led to battle by a mounted Napoleon. Very rare.
