"A Military Gentleman"

Post by Theo Raykoske » Sat May 18, 2013 9:35 am

Guys,

Check out the advance publicity for John Ray's forthcoming book. The link is via either Steve Dean or Der Alte Fritz.

His figures and their painting are exquisite! The book should be mouthwateringly inspirational.

I have just received a copy through the post.

It arrived well packed. The binding is good and substantial, and the illustrations are glorious.

Admittedly it's not inexpensive, but I'm very happy with it. Overall it's a fascinating concept.

Gents, don't muck about buy a copy.
It's exquisite and a worthy addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the mid-late 18thC.
All the Best

Oh God yes, it's quite amazing.

A few of the long-standing blog with campaign storylines should think about doing something similar.

I like the book so much that I bought 2 copies. One to peruse frequently, the other to keep in storage for the future.
