[HLMainPic] The authors were Wolseley's AMS & DQMG on the 1873-74 Ashanti expedition. En route it was found that officers present had little knowledge of the destination. Utilising the works available (Govt. Blue Books, Topographical Notes & half-a-dozen travellers' or missionaries' accounts) they prepared these papers in preparation for the campaign. Orig. red cloth, gilt, splitting & stained but sound & scarce. See illustration on our website.   £75
