First edition. These eighteenth-century Army Lists are becoming harder and harder to find, and those for the years of the American War of Independence are particularly desirable. This is especially true when, as here, they are presented in the style of binding which seems to have been reserved by the War Office for presentation copies.

Octavo (225 137 mm). Contemporary red morocco, spine elaborately gilt in compartments with floral tools, green morocco label, marbled endpapers, Greek key roll to boards, floral roll to turn-ins, and all edges gilt. Boards rubbed, some small abrasions, wear to head of spine, morocco label worn and chipped, contents clean and fresh. A very good copy.
