Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1855. 339, illus. (some in color), fold-out map, board corners slightly bumped, cloth worn & sm pcs missing at top & bottom spine edges. Some foxing to text, minor damp staining on plate at p. 282, some weakness to front board, slight soiling to boards. This early work, by one of the finest mid-nineteenth-century British military authors, is increasingly difficult to find in any condition. Some believe that this work was particularly foundational to the author's later masterpiece, The Operations of War. Condition: fair to good.
