THE PROPERTY OF A GENTLEMAN
[ACKERMANN, Rudolph (publishers). Military Incidents. London: R. Ackermann, 1842-1844].
2° (475 x 340mm). 6 fine hand-coloured plates, comprising 4 aquatints by J. Harris and H. Guest, and 2 lithographs by J.W. Giles, all after H. Martens. Late 19th-century morocco-backed marbled boards by L. Lemardeley. Provenance: Marquess of Cambridge (bookplate); N.M. (ownership stamp on verso of each plate).
A RARE AND EXTRAORDINARILY FINE SUITE depicting mounted regiments on six lavish plates, the first published June 18, 1842 and the last January 21, 1844; evidently issued without a title-page, but with the series title and number above each plate, and date of publication and caption beneath. The plates show the 'Light Cavalry on the March (17th Lancers)', 'Advanced Guard Royal Horse Guards Blue,' '13th Light Dragoons or Queen's Escort, Kensington Barracks,' 'Royal Horse Artillery, Review Order,' '2nd Life Guards relieving Guard, Horse Guards,' and '1st Life Guards, the Charge,' the last two being lithographs rather than aquatints. Ogilby 20; not in Abbey Life, Tooley, Colas or Lipperheide.
