[JENKINS, James]. The Martial Achievements of Great Britain and Her Allies from 1799 to 1815. London: printed for J. Jenkins by L. Harrison and J.C. Leigh, [1814-15].

4° (332 x 261mm). Contemporary hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece, title-page vignette, and 51 plates, some plates watermarked 'J Whatman 1838', tissue guards. (Occasional spotting, some very slight browning, without list of subscribers.) Contemporary hard-grained half-morocco, spine gilt, g.e. (extremities rubbed, faded).

The list of subscribers was supplied by the printer as loose sheets, and thus are often not found in this work. It appears that some subscribers actually had to request specifically that they should receeive the list. Abbey Life 365; Tooley 386; Prideaux pp. 224, 341.
