London: William Pearson for Thomas Ward, 1713. First edition, 1 volume in 2, 8vo, pp. [2] ads, [10], 23 (subscribers' list), [1], xvi, 218; [2], 221-448, [12] index; full contemporary paneled calf, gilt spines, red morocco labels; spines rubbed, small cracks starting at ends of joints, but generally a very good, sound set with the full compliment of 15 double-page engraved maps and plans. Horn 445: "Plainly this rather sumptuous work was issued for aristocratic readers. While it pays tribute to Marlborough, Blenheim, which is called Hochstet, is attributed to God's intervention as much as to the "sedateness" and courage of the two commanders...It is not surprising that neither Marlborough's names, nor any of his family, nor those of Addison, Steele, Garth, nor Godolphin, Sunderland, Halifax and other Whig leaders appear on the list of subscribers. This is among the earliest formal histories of Marlborough's military career." Item #23959
