Beautifully illustrated French manuscript on artillery

About the Project

Signed by the Chevalier de Cirfontaine, this lavishly illustrated French manuscript provides detailed explanations alongside finely-colored drawings of French artillery and military machines. The Chevalier de Cirfontaine was likely Amour-Constant de Germay Cirfontaine, an officer in France’s 6e battalion de Royal-Artillerie, regiment Auxonne, created in 1757 under King Louis XV. A treat for the eyes if not for the enemy, this rewarding project already has researchers eager to see transcription results!
