Westall’s Victories of the Duke of Wellington (1819)

Westall’s Victories of the Duke of Wellington (1819)

A very scarce book of great historical interest, "Victories of the Duke of Wellington", by Richard Westall, R.A. (Rodwell & Martin, London, 1819) is a masterly survey of Wellington's successful military campaign against Napoleon. A 12 1/4" x 10" quarto bound in red morocco and boards, the 48-page volume features twelve vivid aquatints by noted painter and illustrator R. Westfall (1765-1836). Wellington's campaign, beginning in 1808 and ending decisively at Waterloo in 1815, is superbly captured and chronicled by the twelve aquatints, with summary text serving as detailed captions for each battle. Overall condition is VG-EX, with a tight binding. This scarce volume has realized prices in excess of $3500, and will surely be a centerpiece in any collection.
