Super catalog with many chromolitho uniform plates.
Boylan’s catalog of Military and other uniforms may have been a promotional printing to show prospective retailers and “patrons” what manner of material they produced. Most of the 14th plate is a brief history of the unit shown. Included are:
- Militia drummer and drum major.
- Army officers
- Army privates
- West Point Cadets
- State of New York soldiers
- Old and Governor’s Foot Guards, Conn.
- 1st Chicago, and Lomax Rifles
- Georgia Huzzars and Essex Troop (NJ)
- 7th and 22nd NY regiments
- 7th Regt. Band, and Gilmore’s Band, NY
- 12th Regt Band, and 65th Regt. Bamd, NY
- Bendix Fire & Duryea Zouaves
This is a nice copy, tight and has only light soiling on the cover. This is another catalog we have never come across.
