Item Description: Lausanne, 1914. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Fair. Réné Meylan & Réné Amiguet (illustrator). First Edition. First edition. Signed and inscribed by the author on the half-title page to " Colonel [later General, in the First World War] divisionnaire Treytorrens de Loys" (whose photograph is on p. 527). 542 pp. 5 vivid color plates of men in historical uniforms + profuse black & white illustrations in the text. Large octavo. Softcover/ wrappers. Published by Léon Martinet, Lausanne, 1914. -- A history of the militia in the Vaudois region of Switzerland, from the early 18th century to the present, with a brief account of the earlier period. -- This copy's text pages & illus. plates are clean & without other defects. However, the front cover/wrapper is lacking, and the first few signatures (ca. 150 pp.) are now almost entirely loose (the succeeding pages are solidly bound-in); the volume would benefit from re-binding in cloth. This caveat aside, this copy is especially significqnt for its inscription to, and provenance from the library of, one of Switzerland's most famous military figures of the early 20th century. Size: Large 8vo. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 002079
