Published by Jonathan Cape in 1935. This is one of the limited edition copies. One of only 750, this being copy 562. It is in very good condition. It is quarter bound with buckrum boards and a gold blocked leather spine. The front cover carries the gold-embossed crossed swords device with the words 'the sword also means clean-ness and death'. There are light marks to the buckrum to both the front and back. There is minor wear to the spine edges and a small chip to the top of the spine. The pages are all clean and all the plates and maps are present. Overall, a very good copy.
