Item Description: Smith, Elder, London, 1857. Quarter Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. John Leech (illustrator). 1st Edition. Bound in publisher¿s red cloth with decorations in blind on both boards, and gilt vignette on top board, corners bumped. Rebacked with dark red leather spine, titles in gilt on red leather label. Blue endpapers. This is a very lively account of the history of a militia regiment, written from first hand experience. The title page bears a pencilled inscription concerning the author, ¿Emeritus¿. It reads ¿Major Prower of the Wilts Militia served in Corfu in 55/6¿ (Wiltshire Militia), and this is indeed the identity of the author. The book is illustrated with two plates by John Leech (as called for). The frontispiece plate has some light foxing, and the second plate has less, mainly along the edges (see photos). The text has a very occasional isolated light mark, one short closed tear and a very little darkening to the top edges of some pages. There are two instances of short pencil marginalia. The endpapers have been reinforced along the hinges. The book is mainly bright and clean, and is tight in its binding. Very good condition. An uncommon book. Octavo, 20.5 cm tall, viii, 300 pages, plus a 16 page publisher¿s catalogue dated June 1857. Bookseller Inventory # 000890

Item Description: Smith, Elder, & Co., London, 1857. First edition. viii, 300pp. With a half-title, engraved frontispiece, and one plate. Contemporary half red morocco, marbled boards, contrasting lettering-piece, richly gilt compartments, marbled endpapers. Rubbing to extremities with some surface loss to boards. Light foxing to preliminaries, recent armorial bookplate to FEP of Cefntilla, family seat of the Raglan baronetcy. A stylistically verbose account of the "Royal Blanks" militia during the mid-nineteenth century, from their first march through to service in the garrisons of the Mediterranean. Though no direct reference is made as to which regiment the history concerns it may be inferred that it is the that of the Royal Wiltshire. Following the death of Fitzroy James Henry Somerset, 1st Baron Raglan (1788-1855), commander of allied forces during the Crimean War, 1,623 of his friends, admirers, and comrades purchased the estate of Cefntilla Court in Monmouthshire Wales, presenting the home to Richard Somerset, 2nd Baron Raglan (1817-1884) and his heirs in perpetuity as a memorial in remembrance of his father's contribution to the British military. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # AQ13062
