1815-1915 Anniversary Souvenir Booklet

Postby Michael Tyne » April 20th, 2017, 3:12 am

This Waterloo Anniversary 1815 -1915 60 page booklet originally authored by Fr Libert, Head-master in Waterloo. This was purchased at an old book sale some 20 years ago in Sydney Australia. Looks to be an original English translated tourist souvenir edition.

I bought an English language Handy Guide of Waterloo & its Environs years ago at Waterloo, in a shop there that no longer exisis.

It has some interesting information in it.

The booklet was published 30 years after the Hotel du Musée [later the Château de Mont-Saint-Jean] was built at Waterloo.
Does anyone know when that was?
