Orme, Edward (ed.). Historic, Military and Naval Anecdotes of personal valour, bravery and particular incidents which occurred to the armies of Great Britain and her allies in the last long-contested war, terminating with the Battle of Waterloo. London: Edward Orme, [1834?]. Folio (14” x 11 1/4”, 358mm x 283mm). Bound in contemporary half red calf with marbled sides, gilt-ruled. On the spine, 10 raised bands in five pairs. Title in gilt in second and third panels, gilt-ruled with fleurons. Essentially unaltered, including ticket pasted to corner of front paste-down, advertising “Price Ten Guineas, half-bound”. Plates vividly and richly hand-colored. Upper and lower edges of text-block untrimmed. Text bright and crisp. A handsome book, perhaps all the more so for the light wear to the peripheries.
