Notes

First edition. List compiled just a few months before the conclusion of the War of Independence. These eighteenth-century Army Lists are becoming increasingly elusive, those with relevance to the American Wars being particularly desirable, and especially so when, as here, they are printed on thick paper, and presented in the style of binding which seems to have been reserved by the War Office for presentation copies. A very handsome piece indeed.
