How it works


The first (and somewhat scarcer) first Colonial Issue of the first edition of this title in the original green cloth with gilt titles on the spine. 8vo. 293pp. with 47pp. advertisements at the rear and advertisements on the endpapers. Frontispiece of Lord Roberts and 6 other plates including 2 maps. SABIB Vol.4. Page 841.

Very slight wear at the top of the spine and some bumping of corners. Signature dated 1902 on the half title. A few pages have some marginal spot stains not affecting the text but no foxing and overall a very good copy.
