How it works


The Star is well represented in the lots for this auction. The author of this book was Books and Letters Editor at this newspaper.

He writes: "The book is far from being a simple regimental history. The motivations of those involved, at all levels, are considered, and comparisons are made with other defence forces utilising similar part-time components."

Unclipped colour painting dustjacket, green cloth-grained paper-boards, green-and-yellow head- and tail-bands, plain endpapers, xxxii pp of prelims including lists of sponsors and subscribers + 8 inserted pp of colour plates on gloss art paper + 787 pp of b/w-illustrated text, appendixes and index + 24 inserted pp of b/w plates on gloss art paper.

CONDITION. Seldom do copies in such perfect condition come on to the market. In this case, as with several other lots from this seller on this auction, this was a reference copy in the library of the printers, Penrose Press, acquired by the sales executive, Ron Deacon, after the company's demise, and untouched until it was described for auction. Complete, unmarked and as new throughout.
