The Danger Zone of Europe. Changes and Problems in the Near East.
London and Leipsic, T. Fisher Unwin, 1911. 8vo. Original gilt red cloth, top edge gilt; pp. 328, 87 (publisher's catalogue), [2, advertisements], palates after photographs, 2 sketch maps, folding map; apart from light offsetting from endpapers, and very faint spotting here and there, a near-fine, partly unopened; contemporary bookplate Lady Wolsley of Stafford. Very rare first edition. A prescient book on the shifting geopolitics of Turkey, Albania, Greece and the rest of the Balkans. A long section is devoted to the Armenian massacres. Woods concludes with the question whether 'that "Dange Zone of Europe" - will or will not be the scene or the cause of a disastrous war in the future' (p. 320). Henry Charles Woods (1881-1939), F.R.G.S., served in the Grenadier Guards, travelled extensively in the Balkans and Asia Minor as special correspondent for several newspapers. His 23 volumes of travel notebooks are kept by the Royal Geographical Society.
