NotesFirst edition. 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. Emendations in a contemporary to the pages relating to the First, Coldstream and Third Regiments of Foot Guards. Later armorial bookplate of the Col. Hugh E.E. Everard, of the Worcestershire Regiment to the front pastedown. A pleasing copy.
Octavo (203 x 129 mm) Contemporary calf, red morocco label enclosed in triple fillet gilt panel, low bands framed by single gilt rules.
Advertisement leaf before the title bound in.
A little rubbed and with some skillful restoration on the joints and at the head and tail caps, some foxing and browning, but overall very good.
