With decorations and dispatches from the 1870 Franco-Prussian War
Description  

Interesting archive handsomely displayed within a dark green leatherbound album, 8.25 x 12, including more than a dozen original letters and documents primarily by military figures, six maps, and fifteen prints, cartes-de-visite, and other images, all arranged throughout a sixty-page typed narrative of the conflict. Two medals, the Legion of Honour and the Order of Pius IX, are set into the album covers. Among the letters and documents are one by General Jean Auguste Margueritte, a four-page manuscript document listing the soldiers honored after the Battle of St. Barbe, and a fifteen-page handwritten manuscript about the rights of prisoners of war. In fine condition. These items came from the belongings of Martin-Nicolas-Alfred Rouff, a decorated officer.
