Lot 189
[PANORAMA] Line of March of a Bengal Regiment of Infantry [in Scinde-from cover].
London: Ackermann & Co, n.d. [circa 1830]. Publisher's purple cloth sleeve stamped in blind and titled in gilt, retaining flaps. 3 1/8 x 12 3/4 inches (7.75 x 32 cm), the total 280 inches in length; hand-colored lithograph title or label as front paste-down (apparently as issued, see Abbey), 22 joined hand-colored lithographed panels (lithography by Madeley of London), the last panel mounted to the rear paste-down. Case faded, rather worn, one fold split (and all folds with linen backing), some minor staining and finger-soil, in all quite appealing. Early book label of G.

This is Abbey Life 515, which dates this as about 1830, and which confirms the total length as 280 inches.
