On a piece of thick paper, 36.5 x 38 cm. In fair condition, on aged and spotted and dusty paper, flattened out after being tightly furled, with one short closed tear in margin repaired with archival tape. The field plan is delicately drawn in ink to a 'Scale of four inches to one mile', and coloured in green, blue, grey and red. Showing an area of land with Blackwater roughly in the north-eastern corner (with the Fernhill Rd heading southwards from it, and the Exeter road heading eastwards), the Eversley and Ash crossroads beyond Hawley lake in the south-western corner, and the village of Barrow towards the north-western corner. Ewart was the author of two books, and was a keen cricketer (a member of the MCC) until losing his left arm during the Indian Mutiny. His 'Who's Who' entry reads: 'Ensign 35th Regt 1838; exchanged as Captain to 93rd Highlanders, 1848; served in Crimean and Indian Mutiny campaigns; present at battles of Alma, Balaclava, Inkerman, and both assaults upon Sebastopol; also at capture of Kertch and Yenikale; received two sword-cuts at Relief of Lucknow and lost his left arm by a canon-shot at Cawnpore; became Lieut-Colonel of 93rd in 1859; commanded 78th Highlanders, 1859–64; was ADC to the Queen, 1859–72; commanded a division in India, 1877–80; Maj.-Gen. 1872; Lieut-Gen. 1877; General 1884; Colonel of the Gordon Highlanders, 1884–95. Distinctions: medal with 4 clasps; Legion of Honour; Medjidie; Piedmontese medal for valour; Turkish medal for Crimea; medal and clasp for Relief of Lucknow; three times promoted for service in the field and recommended for the VC'. Accompanying the map is a manuscript plan (17.5 x 22.5 cm) in ink of a design, possibly by Ewart, for an extension 'to match present Dining-room' (in Ewart's residence, Craigcleuch, Langholm, Dumfriesshire?), with two of the room's corners giving into turreted rooms, the first a 'W. C and Lavatory', and the second a 'Gun and Fishing-rod room'. In fair condition, on aged paper, with small closed tear at foot. N° de ref. de la librería 12589
