EVANS, Rev. G. B. Vivian, late acting Chaplain to H M. Forces. A Day At Waterloo by Little Harold : to which is added An Account Of Brussels during the war in 1815 [comprises A Day At Waterloo : and also The Battle Of Waterloo with an account by eye-witnesses of Brussels and the field during and after the engagement]. , Brussels, Kiessling 1919.

2 Works-in-1 Vol [??], original white printed paper wrappers. Sm.8vo, A Day At Waterloo half-title + pp39 + map & 10 plates : and The Battle Of Waterloo pp50. Some foxing of wrappers and of parts of A Day At Waterloo, wrappers with some very neat professional repairs and restoration, overall a very good copy of a cheap and fragile production. Scarce. First issued 1908 : no copy of any edition listed in the British Library, Cambridge or Oxford University Libraries, nor in the National Union Catalogue. 'Every one feels moved at the sight of this field of battle, the grave of thousands of men of all nations, and the witness of such numerous acts of courage and heroism that history has been unable to register them all ...'. It is hard to credit that a new edition of this guide, trumpeting such sentiments by a former Chaplain to H M. Forces, no less, should be issued barely one year after the close of World War 1 with its industrial-scale slaughter carried out on more or less the same Franco-Belgian battlefields. (Book ref. 9129 )  £ 25.00
