“French Foreign Legion Uniforms 1831-197” by noted Legion collector Austin Kelly. This limited-edition publication is a collection of color plates by Adjutant Rudolph Burda with explanatory pages.
There are 22 plates by Burda each suitable for framing that would make a great centerpiece to a Legion collection.
I believe these prints were limited to 100-200 sets. My copy (which I received from Austin) is number 11. No publication date but the artwork is date 1977 and cover dated 1978.
