Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Near Fine


Pre-publication or proof copy, bound in plain, unprinted wraps, unusual in that it is bound on the right (fore-edge), opening on the left, top text block edge in gilt. Front cover and first signature (through p. 4, just prior to color map) detached, cover with slight loss at lower binding corner, signature fully intact. xvi,400 pp., illus. w/ 9 (of 10) photogravures, 2 color maps, additional photographs in text, lacking frontis. plate (possibly not included in this issue). Printed at the Ballantyne Press. Interior shows occasional, scattered light foxing, a few page numbers circled in pencil on Contents leaf, otherwise unmarked and intact. Exceptionally scarce, virtually unique in this form, and ready to be cased - a decision that we have chosen to leave to the purchaser.
