Title: Private, Grenadier Companies, 1768 (caption title). [The Annals of the King's Royal Rifle Corps.] [ORIGINAL CHROMOLITHOGRAPH PRINT].
Description: London, John Murray, 1913. Original single-sheet chromolithograph. Overall size 23.3 x 15.8 cm. Printed on heavy paper with ample margins. Bearing at foot, outside image area, the legend 'Private, Grenadier Companies, 1768' in neat cursive, and at head 'Plate C'. In fine condition. ¶ Delicate plate with bright, lovely colours. An authoritative manual on chromolithography in 1885 (Colour and Colour Printing, by W. D. Richmond) asserts the need for at least nine separate stones to achieve a similar richness of tonal scale, but in fact the number of stones used was sometimes more than twenty! First (and only) edition of Milne's hallmark series of British military uniforms. Plate in excellent condition. Scarce. (Not in Colas).
