The above book number refers to the full four volume set of the history of the War in Egypt and Sudan. There is no marked publication date but the preface is dated 1887. These are former library (Military/ Militere Museum Library/ Biblioteek) and there are stamps throughout all four volumes to verify this. The books have been sadly stored. Their general condition is poor. All four volumes have much wear, marking and storage damage and light fading. All four are light worn at the right hand quarters of their front covers. This also affects the back cover left edge. There is much wear to all extremities, corners, the head and feet of all spines and their bindings. All have fragile front and end papers (the frontispage of Volume four is loose - it is included). All have a previous owner inscription (volume four directs the reader to the mention of a relation of the owner). The paper trim edges are tarnished. Annotations are scatter-gunned through the volumes. Despite their general fragility and disrepair, the generalised foxing and erratic, noisy binding, all pages are present and complete. This passionate, thorough, thrilling history is told on clear, stoic, brave, sound pages. They may be read with confidence and comfort. The illustration plates are thrilling and clear. Age and robustness are common friends throughout. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
