The Russian Army in the Field
Original handbook of the Russian Army, published in Vienna in 1893.
It provides an excellent survey on the russian army with their various troops, tactics and regulations.
In the rear are stunning plates of russian uniforms in color, made in chromolithography printing.
This is the extended 1893 edition with 165 pages (first edition from 1887 has only 81 pages) of this very rare publication.
This extended edition is not in the inventory of German largest libraries like the German National Library or the German
State library in Berlin or Bavarian State library in Munich !!!!!!!!!!!
.... upon further research I found only one other copy in Germany in the Bavarian Army Museum of Ingolstadt.
Thus I think, that only a handful copies of this edition have survived the past 117 years !
