First edition, first impression of this prolific author's first book. 

Contents clean. The pictorial wrappers are in near fine condition with very light chipping at the front edge of the front panel and a chip at the bottom corner of the rear panel. Overall a near fine copy of a book that is notoriously difficult to find in collectible condition.

The title refers to the Jameson Raid.

In his later years Wallace became a Hollywood scriptwriter and wrote the screenplay for King Kong, his last book.

  • Binding Condition: Near fine
  • Overall Condition: Near fine
