Military Uniform Caricatures

The following is a selection of some of the beautiful illustrations taken from a recent post on one of my favourite blogs BibliOdyssey. I attempted to find more of these dapper Military uniforms, but sadly, the archive from which these caricatures originate, the 'Watercolors site' from the Anne S. K. Brown Military Collection at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, is maddening to navigate.
