In addition to the engaging text, the Anthology includes some 200 prints, maps and diagrams  sourced from original, hand-coloured publisher-proofs, (Getty family library, Wormsley, England), a series of 34 etchings, originally published by John Booth, (coloured to replicate the original etchings, by the eminent watercolourist, Peter Frith), a fine collection of satirical, Napoleonic sketches from the Anne S. K. Brown (military) Library, and much more.

The historic Waterloo battlefield panorama, published by John Booth is also tipped into one volume, similarly Battle of Waterloo campaign maps, and plans from both Jones & Mudford’s original works.
