FIRST EDITION. 8vo., pp. xxiii, 3-431 plus glossary, notes, select bibliography and index. Six maps and 33 photographic illustrations. Original black cloth AS NEW. Interior AS NEW. Dust jacket AS NEW. Patrick French's first book, Younghusband - The Last Great Imperial Adventurer, brought him fame and a well-deserved reputation as one of Britain's most accomplished modern biographers. In Liberty or Death, French once again shows his mastery of a subject and makes this book compelling reading. This is not the popular view of the inevitable and benign loss of Empire under the pressure of "unquenchable socio-political forces" It shows rather a picture of British confusion, human frailty and neglect, when key events were the result of "chance, or even error, and some of the most important decisions of the period were made on an almost random basis."

Descripción de la librería: We specialise in travel, adventure and exploration books published between about 1900 and 1960, loosely referred to as post-imperialist travel writing. Although most books are the first-hand experiences of their authors, we have included books of general interest about a particular area or incident and autobiographies and biographies by and of famous travellers or adventurers. You will also find some books we consider of particular merit outside our somewhat arbitrary date range. Mark Culme-Seymour Proprietor
