Item Description: London: Printed For J.Almon, 1779., 1779. 8vo. pp. 1 p.l., 37, [1]ad. modern bds. Second Edition. Shortly after his capitulation at Saratoga, Burgoyne requested that he be allowed to return to England, where he was greeted with the most intense official criticism and disapprobation. Elected member of parliament for Preston, Burgoyne soon resigned all of his civil and military employments when ordered by the King to return to America and rejoin his captive army. This letter explains his conduct and includes, in the appendix, the King's orders as transmitted by Lord Barrington, and Charles Jenkinson's letters, informing Burgoyne that, in view of the neglect of his duty, the King accepted his resignation.

Item Description: London: Printed For J.Almon, 1780., 1780. 4to. pp. viii, 140, lxii, [1 leaf]ad. 6 folding engraved maps & plans (5 partially coloured; 2 with onlays). 1 table. 19th century half calf (rubbed, joints partly cracked, extremities worn, light dampstain to upper margin of some leaves otherwise very good). First Edition. Burgoyne’s defence of his actions in the northern campaign of 1777, which led to his surrender with 6,000 men to General Gates at Saratoga, constitutes one of the best sources on the campaign. His main argument against the criticisms lodged against him in parliament and press was that his army was half the size he had requested, and was badly provided for. The map and plans engraved by William Faden depict the battle positions and actions of the opposing armies: Huberton, the attack at Walmscock, the encampment at Swords House, Braemus Height, the position at Saratoga, and a general map of Lake Champlain and district.
