The Capture Of Atlanta, Georgia, Sep.t 2.D 1864. By the Union Army, under Major Gen.l Sherman. On the 30.th August, the Union Army, by the masterly strategy of Gen.l Sherman, made a rapid flank movement, cutting the Rail Road south of the City, attacking the rebels at Jonesboro, and capturing their guns and defences there. Hood, the rebel commander, finding himself completely outgeneraled, set fire to his stores, blew up his magazines, and "skedaddled." Gen.Slocum with the 20th Corps occupied the place and thus in the thrilling words of Sherman, "Atlanta is ours and fairly won.!!

Coloured etching. 250 x 355mm (9¾ x 14"), very large margins.
Austrian General Karl Mack von Leiberich grovels before a tiny Napoleon, offering his sword and the keys to the city of Ulm. Mack eyes three French Grenadiers who each hold a large sack inscribed '20 Million Livres'. At the Battle of Ulm (16-19th October 1805) Napoleon surrounded Mack's entire army at Ulm: Mack surrendered with 25,000 men, 18 generals, 65 guns and 40 standards.

A scene of natives armed with muskets and swords watching from the mouth of a cave. The illustrated titlepage of 'Sketches in Afghaunistan' by James Atkinson (1780-1852), 'Superintending Surgeon of the Army of the Indus, Bengal Division' during the ill-fated British expedition into Afghanistan (1838-42). A Persian scholar and linguist, Atkinson has been described as 'a Renaissance man among Anglo-Indians'. Because of his languages he met many of the Afghan protagonists, including both Shah Shoojah-ool-Moolk and Dost Mohammad Khan. Fortunately he left the British garrison in 1840 to take another post, thus avoiding the disastrous retreat from Kabul in 1842. In his book 'The Expedition into Afghanistan', also published 1842, he compared the British presence in Afghanistan to Sisyphus rolling his stone up the hill.
