London: George Philip and Son. 1914., 1914. First Edition. Octavo, two volumes, pp. viii, 300, pp. 308. Two coloured folding maps, illustrated throughout with photographs. Bound in publisher's textured green cloth with gilt titles to spines and gilt titles and stylised poppy to upper boards. Gilt top edges, all other edges untrimmed. Both volumes have a bookplate and a bookseller's label affixed to the front pastedown, volume one has a neat ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Both volumes have some light spotting to prelims and to the edges, endpapers somewhat spotted and browned. Slight dustiness to gilt top edges. Both volumes show light wear to the coves with some faint marking to the upper board of volume one, corners and head and tail caps slightly bumped, a small puncture to the cloth covering the upper outer joint of volume one. All told a very good example of a scarce title.
