"France Militaire" Prints from the 1830's - "Troupes Autrichiennes"

I recently found these prints online from the 1830s showing Austrian troops from the Late Revolutionary/Early Napoleonic periods. There are some interesting pictures, especially the Militia images, so I thought I should share them on here.

First, here are two nice maps of the Battle of Marengo.

The Austrian Troops images.

The artillery piece with the black and ochre striping that is so debatable is interesting; I have seen very few sources showing this, but it is clear on this image.

The other images relevant to the Austrian Army are more scenic, rather than uniform reference, but interesting nonetheless....

I hope you find these as inspiring as I did.
