This is an antiquarian first edition of W. B. Craan's account of the Battle of Waterloo, translated from the French by Capt. Arthur Gore, published in 1817. The book is in good condition for its age; the cover is peeling on front and back corners, the spine is scuffed at the top and bottom, and there is substantial foxing throughout due to age. There are stamps on the title page that read H. W. Taylor. However, the binding is still tight, and the pages are undamaged and unmarked, apart from the foxing.
