Williams was a British caricaturist and was chief caricaturist for S W Fores between 1799 and 1815. The title page states that the text is embellished with humorous coloured plates. The British Library copy shows the illustrated plates ascoloured as well as throughout text. To ourcopy the plates have not yet been coloured and are also boundfollowing the preface. Therefore, it is possible that thiscopy was issued before publishing was complete, or itis an early publisher's proof. Condition: In a quarter cloth binding with a hand written spine label. Externally, sound with slight bumping to the extremities and to the head and tail of spine. Spine has faded due to sunning.

He started in September 1805 as 'Fahnrich' in the infantry-regiment Lusignan with which he took part in the battles against France in Italy. In the same year he was promoted to 'Unterlieutenant' in the Warasdiner Sanct-Georger Regiment. In 1809 he became Oberlieutenant in the General Quartiermeisterstaabe. With this staff he took part in the famous battle of the Zermania bridge in the Zermania valley, the patent explains that after the unfortunate military defeat in the Zermania valley he was the only officer present who lead the troops into battle near Grachacz and reunited lost parts of the army in doing so. In 1813 he became Hauptmann and was part of the second reserve armycorps of Freiherr von Hiller of the brigade of General Rebrovich. It was in this capacity that his ability to lead in battle became apparent. In 1813-1814 he fought in 12 battles that were part of the campaign. He earned the knighthood of the order of Maria Theresia with his conduct in the campaign amongst others at Weixelburg, Laschitz and Birknitz. He furthermore fought at Rovigo, Castagnara, Pontenura, Parma, Rubiera, Reggio and Piacenza. He also fought in the campaign against Napels in 1815, travelled to Briancon and Nizza and was attached to the armycorps of fieldmarshall-lieutenant Count of Bubna. Here he recieved the order of Sankt Mauritius und Lazarus from the King of Sardinia. The title Freiherr of Weixelburg refers to the battle he took part in at that town, currently in Slovenia. The Maria Theresia order was started by Empress Maria Theresia in 1757. H175

        Historic, Military, and Naval Anecdotes,

      London: Edward Orme, Publisher to his Majesty, and to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent,, 1819. of personal valour, bravery, and particular incidents which occurred to the armies of Great Britain and her allies, in the long contested war, terminating in the battle of Waterloo. Quarto (345 x 259 mm). 20th-century purple half calf to style, decorative gilt and blind tooled spine, dark green morocco label, marbled sides. 40 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Dubourg, Clark or Fry & Sutherland after Manskirch, Heath, Atkinson and others. General pale offsetting from plates to text, pp. 3 and 5 of letterpress soiled at fore-edge and with old repairs to closed-tears, old repair to closed-tear in blank margin of plate opposite p. 32 ("Anecdote of the bravery of the Scotch piper"), some signs of handling; the plates themselves fresh and bright. First edition, early state, plates watermarked 1812, 1815 or 1816, text 1806 or 1812; the plates have printed issue dates between 1815 and 1818, and were first assembled in book form in 1819. Abbey and Tooley are at variance on the status of differing issues, but Abbey concludes, "it would appear reasonable to assume that the early state of the book has a dated title," as here. The colour in this copy is excellent. Orme was the son of a Manchester fustian manufacturer who came to London around 1794, his first engraving being published by his brother Daniel in that year. "On 21 January 1799 Orme was appointed printseller in ordinary to George III and on 5 April 1820 editor of prints in ordinary to George IV. In May 1800 he had a shop in Conduit Street, London (at the corner of George Street), and in 1801 exhibited a portrait at the Royal Academy. In the same year he established himself at 59 New Bond Street, London, at the corner of Brook Street, and published Rudiments of Landscape, a volume of uncoloured etchings after his brother William's drawings" (ODNB). He then embarked on the publication of a series of highly popular aquatint books of which this was to be the last. He had begun investing in property around 1809, and in 1824 he closed the shop and concentrated on a new career as a property developer. "Edward Orme was, after Rudolph Ackermann, the most important publisher of illustrated books during the short golden age of the coloured aquatint" (ibid.). The present work is a highly effective visualization of the most memorable "anecdotes" from this remarkable period of British successes, martial and naval, including Wellington and Blücher meeting at La Belle Alliance; the deaths of Ponsonby and Picton; the taking of the French eagle at Barrosa; Uxbridge wounded; Nelson in the cockpit at the Battle of the Nile; and the boarding of the Chesapeake. "The book is remarkable for its brilliant colouring" (Martin Hardie, English Coloured Books, p. 138).

The image for Waterloo shows the point when, after eight hours of defensive fighting, 'the approach of the Prussians on the left of the British line determined the Duke of Wellington to be in his turn the assailant' and to order the general advance of the Allied line. Westall's drawings were engraved by Theodore Henry Fielding.
