John C Candler: Miniature Wargames du temps de Napoleon
This famous set of early wargames rules was published by the author, John C Candler, in the States in 1964. They were presented as printed sheets in an A5 size green ring binder. Illustrated with pictures of Scruby 30mm figures, they ran to 120 pages, including rules, historical notes, biographies of Blucher, Archduke Charles, Nelson and Wellington, and notes on suppliers. They include sections on war at sea and international wars. Charmingly it includes the name and addresses of all the wargamers the author knew of, and several items which will be included in later posts.
