Associated with the seventh of the nine Cape Frontier Wars (1846-1847), known as the 'war of the axe'. Like the six previous wars, it was between the Xhosa people and European settlers. The Xhosa forces were far greater than those of the imperial British troops, and by this time they had replaced their traditional weapons with modern firearms. It was their new use of guns that made the Xhosa considerably more effective in fighting the British. On 28 May, a force of 8,000 Xhosa attacked the last remaining British garrison, at Fort Peddie, but fell back after a long shootout with British and Fengu troops. The Xhosa army then marched on Grahamstown itself, but was held up when a sizeable army of Ndlambe Xhosa were defeated on 7 June 1846 by General Somerset on the Gwangu, a few miles from Fort Peddie.

Magnificent and extremely scarce prospect of the battle at Chalmette Plantation, Louisiana, on January 8th 1815, the largest engagement of the Battle of New Orleans, a prolonged battle between the United Kingdom and United States which took place from December 23rd, 1814, to January 26th, 1815. American forces, commanded by General Andrew Jackson, defeated an invading British Army intent on seizing New Orleans and the vast territory America had acquired with the Louisiana Purchase. The Treaty of Ghent had been signed on December 24th, 1814, but news of the peace would not reach the combatants until February. The battle is often regarded as the greatest American land victory of the Anglo-American War of 1812 to 1815, called the 'War of 1812'. At the end of that January day, the British had 2,042 casualties: 291 killed (including Generals Pakenham and Gibbs), 1,267 wounded (including General Keane) and 484 captured or missing. The Americans had 71 casualties: 13 dead; 39 wounded and 19 missing. Seal of the United States between English and French titles. Print made by Philibert Louis Debucourt (1755 - 1832), after the painting by Jean-Hyacinthe Laclotte, composed from his first-hand sketches of the battle. Laclotte was an architect, artist and engineer born in Bordeaux. He worked in New Orleans from 1806 until 1815, where he designed the Orleans Theater and planned the Faubourg Plaisance subdivision of the city. In 1810, he had formed a partnership with Arsene Latour and opened a school of drawing, architecture, carpentry and decorating. This print comes onto the market extremely rarely (usually hand coloured). Eight impressions are known in institutional collection: at the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Amon Carter Museum, the New Orleans Historical Society, and four at the New York Historical Society. Originally published with a separate key plate.

Engraving, sheet 250 x 170mm (9¾ x 6¾"). Laid in album sheet.
Representation of the allied occupation of Port St Mary, which preceded the battle of Cadiz in 1702 during the War of the Spanish Succession. After the allies landed, they marched on Rota and then entered the town of Port St Mary, and looted the town's unguarded warehouses, convents and churches (as shown here). This conduct both caused Prince George to send home a report despairing of the behaviour, and ended any chance of the local population supporting the allies. The advance lost momentum thereafter, and the allies' attempt to capture Cadiz ended in abject failure. Plate to a volume on events during the reign of Queen Anne.

In the Battle of Fleurus (June 26, 1794) French forces under Jourdan defeated an Austrian army in one of the most decisive battles in the Low Countries during the French Revolutionary Wars. Both sides had forces numbering in the vicinity of 80,000 men but the French were able to more effectively concentrate their forces in order to achieve victory against the Austrians. The French use of the reconnaissance balloon 'l'Entreprenant', seen in the sky upper right, marked the first military use of an aircraft that had decisive influence on the outcome of the battle. L'Entreprenant continuously informed Jourdan about Austrian movements. From the series 'Conquêtes de Napoléonle Grand' published 1802. Numbered 'No.29' upper right.

[c.1829.]
Etching with original hand colour. Sheet 170 x 240mm (6¾ x 9½"). Trimmed.
A scene from Greek War of Independence (1821-29), possibly the Battle of Alamana (April, not September, 1821), in which 1,500 Greeks, led by Athanasios Diakos & two other captains, fought to hold back the 8,000-strong Ottoman army but were quickly routed. Diakos with 48 men decided to fight on and resisted for several hours before being overwhelmed. Severely wounded he was bought to the Turkish General Vryonis who offered to make him an officer in the Turkish army. Diakos refused replying "I was born a Greek and I shall die a Greek". He was then taken away & impaled. This made him a national hero and to this day streets and statues all over Greece are named after him. The German legend underneath explains how the Greeks cleared the passes on the same ground as their famous ancestors (the 300 spartans etc). There was close quarter fighting and eventually the Greeks got the upper hand. A thousand Turks were killed battle flags captured 7 cannon and 300 wagons etc. Menin Pasha was killed by the Greek leader. Most of this is of course propaganda created by the German printers and German propaganda seven years after the event.
