In contemporary (1800s) Half-Leather and marbled paper boards. Lacking two thirds of the spine leather. NO Title Label. Scruffy and with damage/some loss to the leather. The boards (and the leather) are worn and badly scuffed to all 4 corners, with loss to the leather. However ALL hinges holding tight and the book is holding tight. The page fore-edges are age-toned and have some light staining. The book, as is the other I have listed (Volume 5) , is a slightly odd collation and consists of - a Full page Engraved Frontispiece of 'His Gracious Majesty George the Third' opposite a most attractive Engraved Title Page to Volume IV, dated 1811 (? ) , with a small rectangular engraved vignette 'View of Horseguards from St James Park'. Both pages have some light damp-staining). This is followed by The Title/Contents page for 'The Royal Military Chronicle or British Officer's Monthly Register and Mentor, for MAY 1812' followed by a full page engraving of ' The Duke of York ' (pages 3 to 88 pp) ( NOTE: ALL the Frontispieces have some light and varied dampstaining, and most have tissue guards) : Then follows - 'The Royal Military Chronicle... ' for JUNE 1812, pages 89 - 166 pp including a tissue guarded engraved Portrait of 'General Mackinnon'; ; This is followed by 'The Royal Military Chronicle....' for JULY 1812, pages 175 - 248 pp (no, I don't know what happened to pp 167 - 174 but all follows correctly - A 'Supplement' perhaps? ) including an engraved Portrait of 'Lieutenant General Sir Rowland Hill': Followed by - 'The Royal Military Chronicle....' for AUGUST 1812, pages 249 - 328 pp including an engraved Portrait of 'General Abercromby' : Followed by - 'The Royal Military Chronicle....' for SEPTEMBER 1812, pages 329 - 408 pp, including an engraved Portrait of 'Colonel Henderson': Followed by - 'The Royal Military Chronicle....' for OCTOBER 1812, pages 409 - 488 pp, including an engraved Portrait of 'Marquis Cornwallis': Followed by - 'The Royal Military Chronicle....' for NOVEMBER 1812, pages 1 - 84 pp, stating "including an engraved Portrait of His Majesty' - which actually has been placed as the Frontispiece. Then follows the Index to Volume IV: Finally - Bound in at the End is = 'The Life of Charles XII. King of Sweden". Translated from the French. And Now Published with Additions and Corrections. Published 1812 by J. Davis, Military Chronicle Office. This is 'The Supplement to The Royal Military Chronicle' . (iv) + 142 pp. Generally this volume is Internally VERY Good. Please also see my listing for Volume V as this too seems to have also been a personally bound volume and going from the list of 'Embellishments' at the end of the Volume V Index which lists 6 portraits starting with 'His Majesty George III' - it would appear that Volume 5 should have started with the Chronicle for November 1812 with his portrait relating to the content of these issues, and all of that has been bound in THIS volume by the former owner. Contents include: - Operations in Estremadura, in 1811, Journal of the Campaign in 1809, The War between France and Russia; Russian Army, Estimates of the Strength of France and Russia; All current (1811/12/13) Military movements/info, together with Biographies and Obituaries of the major Military figures of the day, Casualties of War, etc, and Various articles on Campaigns, Medical problems, etc, older Memoirs, etc, ; Elements of the Art of War; Journal of the Eighty-Third Regiment; Journal of Occurences at Dominica; Journal of the Seige of Tarifa; Recruiting Officers; Extracts/Articles from The London Gazette, and all things Military of this period, etc, etc, etc. Images available on Request. At the time of listing I also have for sale Volume 5 covering December 1812 - April 1813 bound with 2 other books. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall
