Extrait analytique de la tactique navale
le 1er November : 1827 : Toulon : Manuscript on paper, 156 x 197mm, pp. [12] 1-90 and blanks at either end; p. 90 is a table on a double-page spread. Written in a calligraphic scribal hand (apart from the dedication which is presumably autograph), ruled borders, numerous diagrams of naval tactics in the text. : A pre-publication manuscript copy of a manual of naval tactics with diagrams of naval formations intended for use on shipboard. In his dedication to Commendant Bazoche, Casy points out the value of a pocket treatise compared with large tomes, inconvenient to use on the bridge while at sea. It was written, he says, while serving in South America under rear admiral Claude du Campe de Rosa. Casy then served under the recipient of this manuscript, Commendant Bazoche, between 1823 and 1826 aboard the Marie-Thérèse, during the Spanish War off Brazil, Chile and Peru. In the year that this manuscript was presented to Bazoche, Casy was appointed chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, and later was a vice admiral and Ministre de la Marine.The manuscript is written in an accomplished professional hand, apart from the dedication which is presumably in Casy's own hand. The work was printed in 1828 (Toulon: A. Aurel, 12mo, pp. 106) - I have only been able to locate a single copy, at the BNF.
