Tom Donovan Editions' Special Edition The Indian Order of Merit Vol.I (1837 - 1860)
Founded in 2006, Tom Donovan Editions is a publishing house based in Brighton, England, that specialises in books relating to British military history, particularly the two world wars and the Indian Army. Tom Donovan, the founder, has an established reputation going back over twenty five years both as a publisher and as a dealer in antiquarian military books. His experience in both the new and the used book markets are combined in this venture that seeks to produce books of a superior quality that have academic value and probity and that are also highly collectable.
At the heart of Tom Donovan Editions is The Scholars’ Collection. This is a series of limited editions that are either being published for the first time or, if previously published, are very rare in the original edition. The General Editor for the series is the pre-eminent British military historian, Brian Bond. Our distinguished editorial panel will select only the finest works, beginning with three important works relating to the First World War and all volumes will include an introduction and contextual notes by a professional historian working in an appropriate field. Volumes in this series will be numbered limited editions sewn in cloth bindings, printed on fine paper and presented in a matching cloth slipcase. In addition, appealing artwork will be specially commissioned for the dust jackets of this series which will further enhance their collectability.
The Bibliography Series will form in due course the first systematic, fully annotated bibliography of various conflicts, starting again with aspects of the First World War, but moving on to other areas.. This series will cover topics such as First World War memorial volumes, Great War personal memoirs, etc.. The Bibliography Series will be of the usual high quality associated with Tom Donovan Editions but will not be limited editions.
Special Editions will from time to time cover an eclectic mix of subjects that the editors consider worthy of publication in this format. The aim is to be opportunistic in terms of material and timing. Our first publication in this category was published in November 2010. The Indian Order of Merit Vol.I by Cliff Parrett and Rana Chhina covers the period 1837-1860 and represents the definitive historical record of the Indian Order of Merit and its recipients. Our second publication in this category, They Gave Us Each A Medal by the late Captain Tim Ash, will be published in November 2012.
