8vo. xxvi, [1]-90pp. ca1950, Blue cloth boards. [NF/VG] Being the Letters of a Scots Officer, Sir James Murray, to his home during the War of American Independence.

From the dust jacket: "There are few accounts by British officers describing their part in the War of American Independence; only some two dozen British accounts can be set against hundreds of American. These letters of a young Scots officer, Sir James Murray, are, therefore, of particular importance to students. Besides giving much historical information about the British attitude towards the war, they are also of interest in themselves. They give a vivid picture of an intelligent soldier who was keenly interested in the events of the day and who wrote in a lively style far removed from the dullness of military dispatches. They are printed here for the first time."
