[W.L.L.F. DE ROS]
"An Abridgment of the Regulations for the Formation and Movements of the Cavalry, (as last corrected by the Board), adapted to the Use of Yeomanry Corps. [Second Edition]. IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING WITH NOTABLE LOCAL PROVENANCE"
"W. Clowes, 1838" "8vo., Second Edition, with 57 engraved plates, and numerous diagrams and tables in the text, some light and inoffensive spotting, neat contemporary signature on front free endpaper; original rose cloth, leather label lettered and framed in gilt mounted on upper boards, backstrip and joints mildly sunned else a very good, crisp, clean copy in contemporary binding. This copy was formerly in the library of Ralph Gillingham of Manor Farm, Pilsdon near Bridport in Dorset, and bears his holograph signature on front free endpaper. Loosely inserted is a holograph letter dated 1915 from a member of the Hannams family (successors of the Gillinghams at Pilsdon) confirming the gift of this copy to Major (later Lt.-Col.) Sir William Colfox . Sir William Philip Colfox, 1st Baronet (1888-1966), educated at Eton and Woolwich, served during the Great War as Major in the Royal Field Artillery. Wounded in 1917, he was awarded the MC and taught classics and mathematics at Eton for the remainder of the conflict. After the war he entered politics as MP first for Dorset North and then Dorset West. In 1920 he served as Minister for Pensions. During WWII he ran the Home Guard in West Dorset and continued to teach classics and mathematics at Colfox School in Bridport. A lovely copy in wholly unrestored contemporary state. De Ros's detailed manual was first published in 1835. Third and fourth issues are dated 1844 and 1853. All editions are scarce. No edition is listed in NUC; BLPC records only the third and fourth editions."

BRITISH ARMY.
Infantry Drill 1896. [Introduction by Field-Marshal Sir Garnet Wolseley]. A SPLENDID COPY AND A RARE SURVIVAL
"HMSO, 1896" "16mo., First Edition thus, with 18 engraved plates and musical scores for 23 field calls; original red morocco, sides with double frame border in blind, on upper board enclosing the royal arms and title blocked and lettered in gilt, gilt back, red edges, a remarkably bright, clean copy. With advertisement endpapers in red and black listing the current range of HMSO military publications. This important manual, the standard reference in late Victorian infantry drill and tactics, was compiled largely by G F R Henderson at the behest of Sir Garnet Wolseley during the lead-up to the Cardwell Reforms. In this form it was variously updated and re-issued until the turn of the century. The present edition was, we believe, the last major revision before the Anglo-Boer War. The plates depict a comprehensive range of drill manoeuvres and tactical operations from digging shelter trenches to lining rifle pits. An astonishingly well-preserved copy and a rare survival."

Manual of Military Law. War Office 1914 [Sixth Edition]. THE GREAT WAR ISSUE
"HMSO, 1914" "8vo., Sixth Edition, endpapers lightly browned, fore-edges lightly dust-soiled; original red cloth, gilt back, very neatly recased with all advertisement endpapers preserved, a very good, clean copy. With 17pp publisher's catalogue on pink stock bound in at front and rear.The compilation of the Manual of Military Law was initiated by Secretary of State for War Stanley in 1879. In order to produce a single comprehensive manual the Rules of Procedure required considerable legal amendment, including the repeal and replacement of the Army Discipline and Regulation Act 1879 by the Army Act 1881. The first edition was approved by both Childers and Hartington and published in 1884. The present edition contains an entirely new chapter on the laws and usages of war, revisions resulting from the Army Reforms of 1908, and (notably) the inclusion for the first time of the Official Secrets Act. It is arguably the most significant single issue, containing as it does the broadest set of amendments stemming from sea changes in service structure and practice. Fortunately it was completed in time for the conflict about to come. COPIES OF THE SIXTH EDITION ARE UNACCOUNTABLY SCARCE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. A rare survival."
