Battle Of Waterloo...
Item # 626180 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, June, 1815, with the Supplement issue.
* Battle of Waterloo - Belgium
* Napoleon I vs. Duke of Wellington
This issue, along with its 94 page "Supplement", reports one of the more notable military events in European history, the battle of Waterloo in which Napoleon Buonparte was defeated by England's Duke of Wellington. And terrific to have this in a British periodical, from the country which was the victor.
Near the back of the June issue are various reports under the heading "Abstract of Foreign Occurrences" which give much detail on the situation with the French (see for portions), with much on Napoleon and his political ambitions with France. This text takes over 5 pages The "meat" of this historic report, however, is found on several of the interior pages of the "Supplement" issue, it being the identical report as found in the very famous "London Gazette Extraordinary" issue of June 22, 1815, the one which constantly turns up as a reprint due to its historic desirability.
The report carries a dateline of "Waterloo, June 19" and provides extensive coverage of the battle in a 2 1/2 page report signed by Wellington himself (see for portions). Carrying over to take almost 7 additional pages are further reports from the Duke of Wellington including a very extensive list of "Names of Officers Killed, Wounded and Missing" for the various dates of the battles.
None of the plates called for are present but none were related to the mentioned reports. Total of 180 pages, wide untrimmed margins, 5 1/2 by 9 inches, nice, clean condition.
