The famous “Regulations of the Conde de Lippe.”   At the request of Pombal von Lippe undertook a thorough reform of the Portuguese military establishment, and drew up regulations, founded a school of artillery and built fortifications on the frontier with Spain.   According to Borba de Moraes these regulations were introduced in Brazil and, with some alterations, remained in force there until 1895.   The folding plates illustrate troop movements and a military campsite.
