THE COMMEMORATIVE EDITION
Each commemorative volume is quarter leather bound, by hand, in a high quality, chocolate calf, with gold bands and lettering to the spine, and with the covers of scarlet bookbinders silk blocked in a design featuring the British and Prussian flags rampant, with the Tricolour fallen.
Specially made end papers feature scenes from Maclise’s, rarely seen, cartoons. These, his pencil preparations for his great panel in the House of Commons, are reproduced by kind permission of the National Gallery. Each volume will also have three ribbons in blue and red, matching that of the Waterloo medal.
Each book is presented complete with a portfolio of maps. The portfolio is also quarter bound in chocolate calf with gilt bands and with the covers in scarlet silk, to best match the book. The portfolio contains eight maps secured in archival pockets crafted in a deep brown card.
The portfolio and book are housed in a chocolate brown kashgar covered slipcase.
The commemorative edition will be delivered by courier in a double walled, foam-lined carton, to prevent damage.
