My little enconium in praise of this essential and beautiful volume of Rousselot's sublime prints:

I have had a copy for years and it is much treasured. Sometimes I just leaf through it for the sheer joy of it.

Very nice review of a truly fabulous book.

It's a great source for painting horses, too.

I agree very nice plates and very good value for money

Excellent book and I had the opportunity to meet the author in 2008. He was a great gentleman and another historian of the old school lost too soon.

Thanks guys, glad you like the review and the book itself.

@ Extrabio1947: yes indeed, I've used it for that very purpose several times already. I also used it to help me get the arrangement of reins right on a recent 54mm French hussar model:

It is an inspiring beautiful book….and if you got a copy for fifteen quid…well done you! Wish I had.

Although so many of the prints are reproduced very often on the Internet, there are many that have escaped the attentions of Pinterest (so far anyway)
