First edition of this short history of a quiet period during the regiment’s history, from Waterloo until the Criimean War, by a former lieutenant-colonel in the Royal Artillery. Presentation copy from the author, with an autograph letter signed to a fellow artillery officer (“Courtenay”) saying “you are the only officer in the Regiment to whom I sent a copy” and looking forward to a visit; dated from Kew, 1917. Also inscribed, in pencil, by Major Courtenay at the head of the title page.

Octavo. Original brown cloth, gilt lettered spine. A particularly nice copy.
