First Edition of this epistolary account of the British military expedition from Canada during the American Revolution. Anburey attempts to vindicate, in a series of 79 letters, the British surrender at Saratoga. Much of the early correspondence is addressed from Quebec and Montreal, most of the second volume from military prisons in Virginia and Maryland. The large plates and map provide some important views of military encampments and major battle locales. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.
