About this Item

At the base of the title-page of this infantry manual is printed "Reimpreso por disposicion del . . . se?or don Carlos Doyle, teniente general de los reales exercitos." => That is, Lt. Gen. Charles William Doyle (1770?1842) ordered this work to be printed. Doyle was an Irish-born British lieutenant-colonel who in 1808 was ordered to Portugal to help fight Napoleon in the Peninsular Campaign. He very successfully aided the Spanish army in instilling discipline and organizing light infantry and was made a lieutenant general in the Spanish army. In 1811 Britain ordered him home, but when he reached Cadiz, Sir Henry Wellesley convinced him to command a camp at which a new army was being organized for action in the south of Spain. Again he was highly successful in his military instruction of new troops, and as a result was promoted to full colonel in the British army; he remained in Spain till the end of the war in 1814. The present work, extracted from the larger one of the same title printed at Madrid by the Imprenta Real in 1808, was clearly printed for the instruction of Doyle's southern army. At the rear of the volume are => 30 folding plates setting forth various dispositions and movements of infantry troops; clear, careful, verbal explanations of these precede them. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and the CCPBE locate => only three copies worldwide (all in Spain). Provenance: Contemporary signature of "Velez" on title-page. 8vo (21.5 cm; 8.125"). [2], 281?385, 15 pp., fold. plts. numbered xxxix ?lxviii. Not in Palau. On Doyle, see: DNB online. Dark brown speckled calf, black gilt-lettered title-label (a little chipped) to gilt-ruled spine, marbled endpapers; binding lightly rubbed. Age-toning and general light soiling, occasionally a dog-ear or a spot, all plates clean, well-attached, and whole at folds. => A very sound, very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 36362
