Illustrated in Colour. Large 8vo [7.5 by 10 inches], red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Painted in the early 1900s by A. E. Haswell Miller, a Scottish artist and army officer with a fascination for military dress, this unique collection of British and European military uniforms now appears in print for the first time. Haswell Miller travelled widely in Europe as a young artist before the outbreak of the First World War, faithfully recording the rich variety and ostentation of contemporary uniform, knowing that these variations were starting to disappear. From1914 this trend was greatly accelerated as Europe went to war and swathes of enlisted men and officers were clothed in simpler unitorms and materials. During his service in that war, he continued to paint and sketcn wheneverthe opportunity arose, and this collection of plates includes several comp leted during and after the war. These watercolours and his notes, accompanied by supplementary information from editor John Mollo will be of interest to researchers and serious students of military history, as well as those with a more general interest in the development of military dress."
