    Description

    Two Engraved Orders of Battle From the Mahratta War 1817-18. 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 double-page plate measures 16.5 x 11.25 inches. One features the Order of Battle of the Grand Army for the campaign of 1817-18; the other the order of battle for the Army of Deckan for the same period. The plates 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, the edges are slightly chipped, with a central vertical fold crease, else both examples are in very good condition. These examples would make lovely additions to a home study or classroom. Precious little has been written of the Mahratta campaign.
