1788 Reine TAKTIK der INFANTERIE, CAVALLERIE und ARTILLERIE Military TACTICS War
1789. Reine Taktik der Infanterie, Cavallerie, und Artillerie. Franz von Miller. Brno: Traszler 1789 [vol 2 - Stuttgart: Druckerei der hohen Karlsschule 1788]. 10 leaves prelims, 619pp., 12 folding plates; 30 leaves prelims, 507pp., 40 plates (several folding). Two volume set (different printings, matching bindings). I have not been able to trace another copy of this Brno printing of Vol. 1. This copy has 10 leaves of prelims (compared to 12 in the Stuttgart edition), with no Forward leaf and a more compact Contents section, but I think as such it is complete as issued. Otherwise complete (some mispagination, two leaves bound out of order) including all 52 plates. Two stamps to title pages. Average external wear and chipping; Vol. 2 has cracked front hinge, backstrip pulling away, a particularly worn-through corner. Pages have browning, sporadic foxing, some creases, smudges, occasional minor marginal dampstain, minor blemishes. Has a couple of signatures of Harry Lyons-Dumler, an American diplomat in Europe in the 1800s. In a strange twist, his great-granddaughter would marry the Nazi war criminal Josef Mengele, which ironically created problems for Mengele because of his inability to prove to the SS that his wife's great-grandfather was not Jewish!
