This is the 1855 Rang und Quartier-Liste for the Prussian Army and Navy. During this period, the Prussian Navy was quite small. They needed only a few pages in the volume to number their officers and their assignments. The book measures 7″ x 4 1/4″ x 1,” and weighs 10 ounces. Every unit in the Prussian Army is listed, as well as the officers assigned to each regiment/unit. As you flip through the pages, you will see where certain officers have been crossed out. This leads me to believe that some army official was crossing off officers who were no longer assigned to a given unit at a later date. Its front and back covers are missing. Aside from that, the book is in very good condition. It is 100% useable. [SALES ON ALL RANGLISTEN ARE FINAL. We do NOT send them out on approval, or for someone to do research and then return them.
