The Anspessade

click to enlarge

I don't remember exactly the book I scanned this from; I think it was a book on French history titled something like The World of Louis XIV. This graphic, listed as "ranks and uniforms of Louis XIV's army," is notable to us because of the picture on the third row center. The anspessade apparently has a pipe as part of his uniform.
