British Military Uniforms 1768-1796: The Dress of the British Army from Official Sources

£39.99

Product description

British Military Uniforms 1768-1796: The Dress of the British Army from Official Sources
Hew Strachan
Book Club Edition, London; nd.
Hardback; 145 x 220 mm; black boards with titles in gold on spine; 384 pages; 67 monochrome plates, other illustrations within text. Original unclipped dust jacket.
The book is in good condition. The binding is sound. A small closed tear in the dust jacket. Some tanning externally and internally of the jacket. Some page end tanning and slight foxing. The front inner flap of the dust jacket states “72 plates”. Only 67 numbered plates are present. There is no list of plates in the contents. But the plates at the back of the book (unnumbered as pages) are included in the number of pages in the book, with no numerical break in the pages from page 304 to page 377. So no plates are missing.
“This volume records the changes in dress of the British Army from the year of the most important warrant regarding dress (1768) to the year of the next main landmark in uniform history (1796), presenting much information never before published. Here, verbatim, are official records, warrant orders and instructions extracted from the Public Records Office, the War Office Library and the National Army Museum records.” The contents are exceptionally detailed.
