On publication there were only 45 subscribers. An additional 42 copies were sent to the Court Of Directors of the East India Company, and Her Majesty's Commissioners for the Affairs of India. A publishers notice tipped in to another copy of this bookreads: This work has been printed, and in my possession, for several months, for which John Arrowsmith engaged to supply the map mentioned in the title-page and in the list of illustrations, though, for reasons best known to himself, but of which I am entirely ignorant, I regret to say, he has failed to do so. The important events which are passing in the Panjab, together with the continual and urgent demand for the work, render its immediate publication desirable and neccessary. Another map, therefore, has been substituted, which will serve also to illustrate the theatre of war on the Indian frontier. April 3, 1846 John Petheram The replacement map was by James Wyld, but is NOT present here.
