[Volume 2] A Year on the Punjab Frontier, in 1848-49


Date: 1851



First edition of Edwardes’ classic account of the 1848 Punjab rebellion. In 1848 on the Punjab frontier an insurrection rapidly grew into a national movement against the English occupation. That spring, following the murder of officers Agnew and Anderson at Multan, by order of the Mulraj, the young Lt. Edwardes, who had arrived in India as a cadet in 1841, raised a body of armed tribesmen, and rapidly formed a fairly disciplined and faithful force. He routed the rebel troops at Kineyri and inflicted on the enemy a second defeat at Sadusam, in front of Multan.

Young, alone, untrained in military science and unversed in active war, [Edwardes] had organized victory and rolled back rebellion. For his services he received the thanks of both houses of parliament, was promoted major by brevet, and created C.B. by special statute of the order. After the conclusion of peace Major Edwardes returned to England and wrote and published his fascinating account of the scenes in which he had been engaged.

Complete in two volumes: with large folding map outlined in color (laid in loose in Volume I), six lithographic plates (including three color plates heightened in gold), folding panorama of the Fort of Duleepgurh, two folding plans (of the Fort of Duleepgurh and the Fort of Multan), and a folding facsimile of a letter from Vans Agnew to General Van Cortlandt.

2v. fronts. (ports.) plates (1 fold.) fold. map, fold plans, fold. facsim. 22 cm.
