001761 Longmans Green & Co London 1918 First Edition 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall Soft Cover Very Good Original paper covers, black titles to front cover only, 114pp incl seven foldout campaign maps and illustrated by 11 b&w photographs. A contemporary account of the Great War in the Colonies. The book is curiously constructed, and clearly not designed for longevity, The first foldout map is gummed to the reverse of the front cover, while the last of the foldouts itself serves as the back cover. The spine is sewn, and was covered by a paper backstrip, about half of which has since disintegrated. The covers are brittle, and chipped at the edges, and the corners are lightly worn, but the contents are clean and bright, and the binding is sound. $150.00AUD
