How it works


Baden-Powell completed this book while preparing for the defense of Mafiking in 1899. The copyright page states: "The corrected proofs of this Book accompanied the last Despatches that got through the Boer Lines. "The book is made the more interesting by the fact that its proof-sheets were actually revised by the gallant author while besieged in Mafeking, and where he doubtless puts to excellent purpose the precepts he has so clearly laid down for scouting", - Pall Mall Gazette. pp. 138 + pp. 5 of publisher's catalogue, further lists of Gale & Polden's military publications appear on the front endpapers, original red cloth. Light foxing on a number of pages. The book is listed with a brass Boys Scouts crest (10x6cm).
