On offer a rare antique of French militaria: the handwritten manuscript daily journal of the 3rd Company 27th Bataillon de Chasseurs a pied, 12th Alpine Group, dated from 1890. This famed battle group, founded by the Duke of Orleans created in 1888, a mere 2 years prior this book writing, 12 specialized mountain battalions in response to Italy's formation of 6 'Alpini' battalions. "Enregistrement journalier du travail fait dans la Compagnie." as stated on the 'title page'. The first six-seven pages or so have been handwritten by a scribe for the French Army laying out in detail the purpose of the journal, the structure etc. A different hand, we believe the writer to be Captain J. D. Chartrand, begins by outlining even more specific instructions; Education, Theory, Military Code, Hygiene, Exercise, Manouvers etc. It is evident that this book is an both an induction manual and progress report. Other hands detail daily the particular training of the day, the supervising officers of the day and then individual progress is annotated. There are over 170 pages in this journal and appears to span 1890 to 1892. The journal proper is rather unique too, handmade canvas cover over hard boards with marbelized endpapers. Inner hinge break makes for the book being in poor condition and several pages have come loose but all appear to be there. All pages are clean and legible. Superb French language militaria manuscript book and as such rare.
