    Description

    Four Engraved Battle Plans of the Mahratta War 1817-19. From Maps and Plans Illustrating the Memoir of the Operations of the British Army in India, During the Mahratta War of 1817, 1818, & 1819 by Lieut.-Colonel Valentine Blacker, London: Printed for Black, Kingsbury, Parbury, and Allen, 1821.

    Each plan measures 11.75 x 8.75 inches and features various plans of attack including the attack on the Pettah of Sholapoor, Trimbuck, and plan of operations of the 4th Division of the Army of Deckan and plan of the encampment of the 1st and 3rd Divisions of the Army of Deckan. All plans were engraved by Sidney Hall, Bury Street, Bloomsbury. A few of the plans have hand-colored dispositions of troops. The paper has toned slightly, especially about the edges, else all examples are in very good condition. A couple of examples bear the small red ink mark of the Mercantile Library of New York. These examples would make lovely additions to a home study or classroom. Precious little has been written of the Mahratta campaign.
