Chez Lacombe, ( 1775), Paris
20 cm., 482 pp.
Primarily concerning land-based armies, but with marine advice in the supplements. This book has an interesting provenance. It was owned by an American naval surgeon named George Brush. According to Hammersly p. 108, Brush entered the service as Assistant Surgeon in 1861 and passed Surgeon in 1872. His ownership stamp is on the title page. Bound in full mottled calf with spine label. Some binding wear, but text in very good condition. A rare book. OCLC shows only 5 libraries – none in the US – holding copies.
