THE UNIFORMS OF BRITISH LOYALIST VOLUNTEER CORPS: 1798-1799
Remastered version of the 1799 book reprints the whole and original manual on platoon and weapons exercise with 87 uniform plates (hand-colored etched title-page and 86 hand-colored etched plates, all by Thomas Rowlandson) covering the Loyal Volunteers of London & Environs, Infantry & Cavalry. Every uniform contain a descriptive text to each color plate.
The British response to perceived danger of Napoleon invading the England was immediate and defiant. Ackermann goes on to note that when the Loyal Volunteers of London were inspected by the King on 21st June 1799 the roll-call of volunteers, manning 11 different positions, totaled just over 12,200 men. The present work serves as a record of that overwhelming show of loyalty, as well as of the uniforms of all the main volunteer forces. In addition, Rowlandson pictures each individual in a particular drill position, the name and details of which are given in the engraved text beneath each figure.
