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.

Description:
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.

Date Published: 1881. 8vo.
