London: Wm. H. Allen and Co., 1841.. [2],xl,443,95pp. plus folding map, three plates, and 16pp. of publisher's advertisements. Octavo. Original brown publisher's cloth, expertly rebacked, preserving most of original spine. Corners bumped and repaired. Closed tear in map repaired with tissue. Very good. An account of an invading expedition into Afghanistan by the Army of the Indus, a British- led Indian force, during the First Anglo-Afghan War (1839-42). Though the British were successful at the Battle of Ghazni in July 1839, they were ultimately pushed out of Afghanistan. The whole affair was part of a greater conflict between Britain and Russia for control over the area. The views in this work include Kabul, Ghazni, and Kandahar, and the map shows the greater region in some detail.
