HALDANE, Sir Aylmer, Lieut.-General.
A Brigade of the Old Army, 1914.
First edition, extremely uncommon, particularly so in the jacket. Brigade commander’s history of 10th Infantry Brigade, 4th Division – 1st Warwicks; 2nd Seaforths; 1st Royal Irish Fusiliers; and 2nd Royal Dublin Fusiliers – from August-November 1914 including Le Cateau, the subsequent retreat, and the advance to the Aisne; “Though not published until after the War was over, General Haldane’s narrative is virtually in its original form, as it was written at the front in the spring of 1915. These early records are invaluable, and contain an atmosphere that no subsequent historical research can replace” (Falls).
Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the spine, and to the upper board within an attractive curvilinear panel, and varnished. With the dust jacket. One full-page map and folding map at the rear. Very good in slightly rubbed, soiled and chipped jacket.
