Two parts in one volume. Paginated consecutively. Octavo. Pp. 16, 146; 147-421, (2). Plus large folding hand-coloured engraved map bound at end, and 3 folding engraved plates bound-in. Half-title present. Hardcover, bound in contemporary brown half calf and matching marbled boards, red morocco lettering-piece lettered and decorated in gilt, direct gilt tooling to spine; corner-tips worn, small chip at head of spine, some rubbing to extremities; old calligraphed signature and charming old ownership stamp in the shape of an elephant to title-page, map bit dust-soiled. In a very good condition, crisp plates. ~ First edition. General Guillaume Philibert, Comte Duhesme, (1766-1815). Two variant editions were published by Michaud in 1814 with identical title-page and identical 16 preliminary pages of the Préface and Avant-propos. The rest of the text, however, is set differently. The present copy conforms the copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. It requires 421 pages for completion while the variant uses less compact type and needs 480 pages to complete the identical text. The typeset of the variant includes also some errors and misprints which had to be corrected in Errata note. A later edition appeared in 1864. The engraved maps and plates are particularly handsome. The large folding map has troop's movements and progress coloured by hand. It is titled "Carte du Théâtre de la Guerre en Russie et en Allemagne pendant 1812 et 1813" and is apparently engraved in preparation for Sarrazin's book "Histoire de la Guerre de la Restauración" (1815). No confirmation could be found for the presence of this map in the variant edition. N° de ref. de la librería 7452
