ADD TO WISHLIST

London, Chapman & Hall, 1888. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. The Russians batter the British using advanced weaponry. Rebound in plain cloth with leather label. Some marking to the boards, looks like a bit of bleaching. Marbled endpapers, original wrappers bound in. Internally neat with a collector's stamp and owner's inscription. Numerous pencil notes throughout. Here's a quote from the preface: "The average Briton, although an instinctive dislike of ?foreigners? is one of his congenital characteristics, seldom troubles himself with consideration touching feelings entertained towards him and his country by peoples differing from him in race and speech ; and it would perhaps surprise him greatly to be assured that he is by no means universally regarded with that affectionate admiration which, to do him justice, he unreservedly lavishes upon himself and all that belongs him." [10772, Hyraxia Books].
