About this Item

Folio, pp. xii, 228, [2] errata and binder's directions, [2]; 40 engraved plates (16 double page and 4 folding), and 41 engraved vignettes; bound with: Bonneville, Supplement aux Reveries ou Mémoires sur l'art de la guerre de Maurice Comte de Saxe, La Haye, Chez Pierre Gosse, 1758, pp. 15, [1]; 21 engraved plates (4 double page and one folding); contemporary red morocco-backed boards, spine in 7 compartments, black morocco label in 1, gilt ornaments in the rest; the boards with an overlay of 20th century pastepaper, endpapers renewed. A standard work on warfare by Maurice, Comte de Saxe, (1696-1750), marshal of France, son of the king of Poland, conqueror of the English, pretender to the dukedom of Kurland, and universal lover, here printed under the editorship of Zacharie de Pazzi de Bonneville. It is a remarkable work on the art of war. Though described by Carlyle as 'a strange military farrago, dictated, as I should think, under opium,' it is, in fact, a classic. It was published posthumously in 1757. This is the only folio edition. Bookseller Inventory # 25960
