About this Item

8vo. 18.5 by 14.5 cm. iv, 44 pp., the leaves made of heavy card stock. The author, a colonial officer for the British army, would later publish "The Annals of the King's Royal Rifle Corps," which contained his color illustrations of uniforms, arms and equipment, and other works. From this work, it is clear he had artistic aptitude, and as an officer in Ceylon, undoubtedly a lot of free time to indulge in the creation of this work. It would seem that this work was written with an eye on possible publication, but that did not come to be. Few will not be charmed by the many vignettes of badges and coats-of-arms, mostly rendered in bright watercolors, with some done as ink drawings. Also illustrated are flags and banners. Some of the tissue guards are heavily foxed, while the cards proper sometimes have offsetting from this soiling. A large chipped loss to the leather spine, with a partial loss of one letter of title. Still a very handsome album. Bookseller Inventory # 003671

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
