Title: ARMY OF BOHEMIA (1741-1643) – PASQUIER, ...
Publication Date: 1747
Book Condition: Very Good
Large format calligraphic manuscript on paper, in French. [Paris: c.1747]. Large folio (490 x 330mm). 101 leaves. Written in brown ink in a cursive hand under calligraphic headings. Original vellum stained green, gilt-lettered title to morocco label on spine REGIE DES VIVRES 1741, 1742, 1743 COMPTE DE M PASQUIE ; (small split to the head of the spine, corners slightly bumped, lacking ties, overall in very attractive condition). This attractive manuscript details, in fine calligraphy, the staffing and accounts of the Army of Bohemia (composed of French, Bavarian and Saxon troops) from 1741 to 1743. This time encompassed the occupation of Prague by Charles, Elector of Bavaria, who had raised a claim to the Bohemian throne at the outset of the Wars of the Austrian Succession. This war was a conflict that embroiled most of Europe, and spilled over into America with the Anglo-Spanish War of Jenkins’ Ear. It is of great interest both for the high quality of the penmanship and for the historical interest of the contents, which exhaustively details the staffing and provisioning of the Army of Bohemia. The account appears to have been prepared as a memorandum for François Pasquier, principal clerk to the Army of Bohemia, assimilating information on the regiment’s wartime expenses.
