Notes

First editions, print run of 1875, fairly uncommon. Obviously these volumes form part of the run of Blue Books, but as a stand-alone item COPAC records only the BL, and OCLC adds just 3 sets, none in the US. Essential source material for the campaign that Churchill considered to have been a declaration to the whole world of the British people's "faith in the higher destinies of their race." (Malakand Field Force, p.314) Attached are two 4-page papers giving the Strength of British Battalions, and Killed and Wounded in the campaign.
