Manoeuvres for a Battalion of Infantry, Upon Fixed Principles. With Thirty-Two Copper Plates. By a German Officer
Printed for J. Millan, London 1767 - 31pp, [1]. 32 engraved plates on 20 leaves, hand-coloured as issued. Recent calf-backed boards. A practical, generally hypothetical work of infantry tactics, very occasionally referencing historic engagements: 'If at Warbourg the English line had marched in such columns, the standing corn would have have fatigu-d them, as it greatly did by their marching in line'. As indicated below the imprint, this work was sold separately 'price Five Shillings' and 'bound with his former Manoeuvres and the Essay on small Detachments, 10s 6d'. From evidence of a faint paper impression to the initial leaves, this present copy was likely once bound with another title. Includes a list of 'Books printed for J. Millan' to verso of A1 and A2, comprising 28 works of military and Americana interest, including 'Major Roger's journal of the late War in America' and 'Timberlake's Memoirs of the Cherokee Nation.', and four others. ESTC T126693. Small 8vo [Attributes: First Edition]
