A Concise Account of the Several Foreign Orders of Knighthood: and Other Marks of Honourable Distinction
Andrews UK Limited, 29. mar. 2012 - 612 sider
This remarkable book provides an account of the origins of various foreign Orders of Knighthood, especially those conferred upon British subjects, and such recipients are listed. A separate section is devoted to honorary sword and plate awards by the Patriotic Fund Institution of Great Britain for gallant conduct, together with relevant citations, and the value of each in pounds sterling. These were for deeds performed during the first decade of the 19th Century during the Napoleonic Wars. A most interesting and historic piece of work, dedicated to Sir Robert Peel.
