8vo., First Edition, with portrait frontispiece, title in red and black, 8 plates of portraits, 110 sepia-toned plates on 48, 2 coloured plates of unit insignia, a map as plate, a full-page map in the text and 4 large folding maps coloured in outline, half-title lightly browned; handsomely bound in twentieth century red full morocco, gilt back, divisional insignia in white and red from original cloth binding preserved and mounted on blank preliminary, a very good, bright, clean copy. Sold with a small quantity of relevant cuttings and a printed flier on behalf of the Old Members' Association.Published in the 'Country Life' series of military histories. The first territorial division to travel overseas, the 42nd served in Egypt and at Gallipoli (May 1915 to January 1916), the Suez Canal and Sinai. Transferred to the Western Front at a time of crisis (March 1917), it fought at Ypres, Nieuport and La Bassee. It was part of the thrust through the Hindenburg Line, crossed the Selle and ended at Foret de Mormal and Hautmont. Includes ROH, honours and awards, OOB, HQ staff and officers commanding. One of the most detailed territorial divisional histories. Falls decries the maps but recognises the unusually number of excellent photographs. A very attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. SCARCE. Enser, p.61; Falls, p.110. N° de ref. de la librería 7525
