What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Folding Maps

The first edition, fourth impression of this work in the publisher's original cloth binding.

Ink inscription to the first blank page and the contents page.

Illustrated with five folding maps. Collated, complete.

A military study of the Boer War by Arthur Conan Doyle, with notes on the cause of quarrels, negotiations, and the various campaigns. This work was first published in 1900, when the British believed that the war had finished; however, the war continued until 1902, meaning that this work had to be constantly revised. Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) is best known as the creator of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes.

12 pages of publisher's advertisements to the rear.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding. Externally fairly smart, though faded to the spine and bumped to the extremities. Mark to the upper extremity of the front board. Closed tear to the head of the spine, causing the cloth to lift. Small loss to the cloth to the tail of the spine. Both hinges are strained but are still reasonably firm. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean except for spotting to the rear free end paper. Maps are in excellent condition.

Very Good
