What Our Customers Say...

Description

The first edition of this work.

'Checkmate' is Forbes-Leith's first hand account of his time in the service of one of the feudal nobleman of Persia.

Illustrated with a frontispiece, and fourteen plates.

Collated, complete.

Written by Francis Arthur Cornelius Forbes-Leith, who also wrote 'By Car to India'.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, smart. A few minor marks to the boards and spine. Light bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Light spots to the fore edge. Front hinge is starting but firm. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean with just the odd light spot.

Very Good
