Additional Details

Second edition of this well-illustrated military history and travel book. Anburey describes his services as a lieutenant under Burgoyne in the British Army, his capture at Saratoga, and his time as a "Convention Army" prisoner of war in Virginia and Maryland. Howes calls for 7 plates, apparently in error; the plate list calls for 6, as seen in all other copies we've traced. Clark, Old South I:192; Howes A226; Sabin 1366.
