For a contemporary illustrated account of The Burgundian Wars (1474-77) you can't do much better than Diebold Schilling's Amtliche Berner Chronik Vol. 3 For anyone like me into early artillery & field fortifications it is a goldmine of info. & images

For almost two years I've been sitting on this report of a reserve officer serving under Clausewitz in the 1815 Campaign. I found the unpublished document in the archives in May 2017. Finally I am on to it....

Amazing what you find hidden in some online digital manuscripts! A complete illustrated catalog of every piece of artillery captured by the Swiss in the Swabian War of 1499, 60 in all 😲 A good record of the variety of early artillery in late 15th c.
