GIMLETTE, George Hart Desmond.
A Postscript to the Records of the Indian Mutiny.
An Attempt to Trace the Subsequent Careers and Fate of the Rebel Bengal Regiments, 1857-1858.
First edition. “Gimlette lists all of the units of the Bengal Army and gives a short annotation of each one discussing their eventual fate” (Sorsky). This copy from the library of historian of the Bombay Army, Patrick Cadell, with his bookplate to the front pastedown, pencilled ownership inscription to the half-title, and his extensive interlinear and marginal annotations, correcting and expanding the text. Much enhanced by Cadell’s additions, this is a fascinating, if slightly unprepossessing, copy of an uncommon title.
Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to the spine, panel in blind to the front board. A somewhat used copy, cloth rubbed, spine sunned and bagging, splitting head and tail, hinges loose but holding, overall a little shaken, remains about good.
