CROSTHWAITE, J[ohn]. Fisher.
Brief Memoir of Major=Gen. Sir John Geo. Woodford K.C.B., K.C.H.

A Paper Read to the Keswick Literary and Scientific Society, March 29th, 1880.

pp. (iv), 63, (i), xi, (iii). Albumen print photograph of Woodford by G. P. ABRAHAM of Keswick taken in 1875, when Woodford was 90 years of age [he died in 1879], 5 lithographic views, plate of facsimile signatures. Original printed wrappers, the front cover showing a view of Catbells Mountain within a border of the general's battle honours, the spine repaired with cloth tape, a very good copy.

*COPAC records copies at Oxford - Cambridge- NLS - BL. The list of illustrations calls for a frontispiece of Catbells Mountain - this is not present here nor in other copies that we have checked. The front cover does have this view and it would seem that a separate plate was never issued.

W. Kent & Co. London. And others.
