£25.00




New ed., 1946 (first pub., 1782). 96 pp., cold., frontis., + other line drawings, some cold. D.j., 20 x 13cm. Some chips to d.j., with a little loss to spine; f.f.e.p., clipped by a third o/w V.G. First published in 1782, the author of this book "marked out in a vein of irony the actual duty and rule of conduct for every officer in the army, from a commander-in-chief to a drum-major omitting no single circumstance that it behoves each rank to be acquainted with". This charming book reappeared in 1946 with spirited drawings, in colour and black and white, by Lieutenant-Colonel F. A. H. Wilson.
