    Fantastic collection of 236 volumes of military prints available for free download from the Bibliotheque Nationale de France here.

    Collections are mainly European and range from C17-C19th with a focus on French troops (lots of Nap I and Nap III). I've downloaded all the Nap I ones I can spot (you have to hunt through the listings), as below.
