HEATH, William (1795-1840). Military Costume of the British Cavalry. London: J. Watson, 1820.
4° (346 x 247mm). Letterpress title and 16 (of 18) hand-coloured aquatint plates by and after W. Heath. (A little light spotting and some marginal soiling.) Contemporary half calf (rubbed, spine frayed).
A VERY RARE SUITE, appearing in parts between April 1st and December 1st, 1820. Capturing the dashing character of the great cavalry regiments, it lacks only the two duplicate plates of the Life Guards and Tenth Hussars, issued to make minor changes in detail. Ogilby 405.
