The Army List (1847) and The Navy List (1846)
The War Office and Admiralty's staff and regiments etc
Parker, Furnivall and Parker, London, 1847 (Army) and John Murray, London, 1846 (Navy). Hardback, half-leather (defective). 18 × 12cm, 108pp + 282pp.
Two titles bound together. The Army List for 1847 is the smaller title and contains officers, surgeons, barrack masters etc and regimental details including battle honours, the Navy List contains the equivalents for the Royal Navy. A fascinating resource for researchers.
The binding is in poor condition, with both front and rear boards detached, and the backstrip is lost. The two lists are in good condition and the text is complete. The final few pages of the Navy List are publisher's ads and these have detached with the rear board. The Navy List also has some handwritten additions after the last page of ads, and a few names have been scored through suggesting they have died. A worn but usable copy.
