Very good copy of the first edition of these interesting, illustrated letters, written from the camp in Turkey. Hamley (1824-1893) was Lieutenant-Colonel in November 1855, and received the Crimean medal with four clasps, the Sardinian and the Turkish Medjidiyya, before being appointed as a Professor of military history at Sandhurst College.
