Mon, 17 Apr 1826. (1.2.2).
‘This day was published’. small 8vo. 9s. 6d.
Notes: ‘The Young Rifleman is an intelligent lively fellow, who tells us his adventures with an air of amusing naivete; and the whole story bears a stamp of authenticity which it is impossible to mistake. In fact, it is full of those peculiarities and minutiae belonging to military low life, with which no one but a private soldier could by possibility have become familiar. But the narrative is interesting, less from the character and personal fortunes of the writer, than from the really curious picture which it offers of the interior of the French camp, of the habits and spirit of the French soldiery under the military despotism of Napoleon; and of the composition and discipline of the legions, which once, with conquest, terror, and rapine in their track, overran the great Continent of Europe’. Monthly Review.

 

Edinburgh Evening Courant

Mon, 27 Feb 1826. (3.5.1).
‘Just published’. post 8vo. 9s. 6d.
Notes: ‘The description of a soldier’s ever-varying career is rendered particularly interesting on this account, that the commonest man, seeking his home wherever he goes, is by means of his billets, as if led by the hand of Asmodeus, introduced into every house, and into the deepest recesses of domestic privacy. Of relations of this nature, there is no scarcity in the volume before us. Our friend at a review of the troops at Valladolid–he entered Madrid under the command of Murat–he plundered and slew there during the insurrection of the 2d May 1808–he was quartered in Aranjuez, in the ruined palace of the Prince of the Peace–suffered from the Guerillas–assisted in the destruction of the accursed prison of the Inquisition, &c &c’–Editor’s Preface.
