BRITISH PARLIAMENTARY PAPERS: MILITARY NAVAL: IRISH UNIVERSITY PRESS: MILITARY & NAVAL
6 volumes large folio. FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS & PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. The Papers in this set document the major themes of nineteenth century military reform: (a) the attempts to bring together scattered bits of eighteenth century military organization into a more modern and efficient system; (b) the abolition of the system of purchase of commissions in the army and the struggle to free the command of the army from the Crown. The papers range in subject matter from the alleged misconduct of a Commander-in Chief (1809) to the reorganization of the whole system of military and naval authority (1890). Comprises: Minutes of Evidence… on the Conduct of the Commander-in-Chief Regarding Promotions, Exchanges, Commissions and Raising Levies for the Army, 1809; Report.. on the Establishment of the Garrisons and on the Pay and Emoluments of Army and Naval Officers, 1833; Report.. on the Purchase and sale of Army Commissions, 1857-59; Reports.. on the Administration of the War Office and Army and Ordnance Expenditure, 1837-70; Report.. on the Effects of the Alterations in Military Organization, 1860; Reports.. on War Office Contracts and on Military and naval Administration, 1890-1900. * * PHOTOGRAPHS & FURTHER DETAILS OF CONTENTS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. There are approximately 5,000 British Parliamentary Papers for the period 1800 to 1900 - a mountain of source material that, however, because of its traditional chronological arrangement, has been difficult to access. The Irish University Press programme of facsimile reprints of these papers overcame this by commissioning academic specialists to select the most important papers and group them on the principle of 32 subject sets in the folio size of the originals. This series was published c.1960-1972. All the volumes are strongly bound in the publisher's original half green morocco leather. They are designed to outlast generations of heavy use and wear and have the great advantage over the original printings because on a strong laid acid free paper. Reproductions of original maps and other illustrations are included throughout the series. Each volume now offered has neat library stamp on front endpaper and verso title, otherwise entirely unmarked and in excellent condition. (Book ref. 20078)   £300.00
