Mudford’s account of Waterloo is one of the most famous and most sought-after. One of the great features of this account are the series of plates, which follow in sequence (the background of one being the foreground of the next) the journey to the battlefield. The field of battle itself is faithfully recorded immediately after the event, with the correct positioning of bodies and the actual damage to the buildings.
