London T. Fisher Unwin 1896 - First Edition. Illustrated throughout with a profusion of full-page plates and maps. Thick 8vo, publisher's original pictorially decorated cloth, the upper cover gilt lettered and with pictorial designs of African warriors blocked in silver, red and black, the spine lettered in gilt. x, 555 pp. A very good and well preserved copy of this rare book. Covers well preserved and the designs in good condition, the text-block sound and clean, some light evidence of age or use, still a very pleasing copy of this very difficult to locate book, cracking to the join of the free-fly and pastedown. Old library label at inner front pastedown. VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH. The history of events in both Madagascar and Ashantee, subjects of general interest as well as military affairs are dealt with in this significant work. The author was present at both campaigns and has been able to add much about the inner side of things that would not have been possible during the engagements and conflicts. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
