Description

First Edition, Folding Maps, Illustrated, Rebound

A very interesting study in the history of The Royal Irish Regiment from the raising of the regiment in 1684 to the first battalion in South Africa in the early twentieth century.

Including chapters on Marlborough's campaigns in the early eighteenth-century, the second siege of Gibraltar, the first war with China, the second war with Burma, the war in the Crimea, and more.

Written by Lieutenant-Colonel G. le M. Gretton of the late 3rd Battalion, Leicestershire Regiment. 

Illustrated with a double-paged lithographic reproduction of Lord Wolseley's letter, three additional plates, and ten folding maps. Collated, and lacking the frontispiece. 

This copy was previously held in the Command Education Library of Belfast, and it contains small library stamps throughout. It has also been rebound in full library cloth.

Condition

Rebound in full library cloth. Externally, very smart, with some light shelf wear and light bumping to the extremities. Library stamps and ink notations to the half title page, title page, verso of the title page, page 2, and page 462. Internally, firmly bound. A few handling marks and spots to the pages, which are otherwise clean.

Very Good
