Starting with the Garde du Corps in their Gala uniforms, there are plates of the Garde Cuirassier, Garde Husaren, Garde Ulanen-Regiment, Garde Dragoner, Garde Regiment zu Fuss, Garde Jäger, Blücher’sches Husaren-Regiment, Gendarmes, etc. Plate 8 shows the uniforms of the Kaiser Franz and Kaiser Alexander Grenadier-Regiment.
It contains uniforms with the alterations which were introduced under Friedrich Wilhelm IV, especially the well-known so-called ‘Pickelhaube’. The Pickelhaube was originally designed in 1842 by King Frederick William IV of Prussia, perhaps as a copy of similar helmets that were adopted at the same time by the Russian military.

TITLES FOR THE MILITARY UNIFORMOLOGIST
Uniformologist: one who studies uniforms – especially military uniforms – through ages and civilisations.
We have a developing range of books dedicated to uniformology, drawing on seminal works from the 18th and 19th century. N&MP have used state-of-the-art printing technology to provide facsimile editions of these hitherto almost unattainable collections and series of military uniform plates.
The artists who illustrated these works customarily painted uniforms that were contemporary, or near contemporary, to them and had most commonly restricted their subjects to the uniforms either of their own nation or those that they had personally seen
