What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Scarce
The scarce first edition of this work, illustrated with a portrait frontispiece, and vignette and full page illustrations throughout from Edward and Katherine Margaret Thornton.
In thirty six chapters, Thornton offers an account of his life, beginning with his medical education, and concluding with a description of an 1890 expedition to the Black Mountains, and a visit to Akra.
As Deputy Surgeon General, Thornton was involved in the 1857-59 Indian Mutiny, the relief of Arrah, the capture of Jegdishpur and Lucknow, and in military action in Oudh and Gorakhpur. Later in his career, he saw action in China and Sudan.
