Above is a selection of Battle Plans from Forbes, Henty and Griffiths, Battles of the Nineteenth Century, published first in a six volume set by Cassell in 1896, and later (1905) in a single volumeedition.Whereas the great designer Talwin Morris was responsible for chapter headings and decorative vignettes, the designer/s of the plans, utilitarian structures of contour lines and natural features peppered with blocks of carefully differentiated assets as they are cunningly termed today. Their inadvertyent but aggressive abstration was to excite the young Wyndham Lewis in his paintings before 1915.
