1827 Army List . A working copy. A late George IV example


A List of all the Officers of the Army and Royal Marines on Full and Half-pay: with an Index. War Office, 1827. 8vo.

Lacking the title page but otherwise complete, pp 1-666 + unpaginated 108pp Index, 48 unpaginated pages  Succession of Colonels &c, 8pp Casualties since last publication, 4pp Alterations and additions while printing. Strong modern half leather gilt with gilt title ARMY LIST 1827 to the spine, We have priced this volume well below the range for a complete volume but it remains a very useful working copy. Most of the pages are interleaved with blanks for notes. Many regiments have neat ink notes showing deaths, promotions etc but also usefully noting the depots where regiments were based. Many of the officers are printed with the gothic  beside their names showing that they were veterans of the Battle of Waterloo 1815 It will be seen from page one that Field Marshal His Grace Arthur Duke of Wellington was still Commander in Chief.  may14/2
