Descripción

The book is neither dated or an edition noted, but probably published about the early 1920s. It tells of the adventures of young scout posted to Baghdad with the British Army. Probably aimed at mature young readers, it paints a graphic picture of life in Baghdad, "the mysterious city with its teeming thousands of people: Turks, Armenians, Arabs, Persians, Europeans, dusky individuals of every sort, Jews, Christians and Mohammedans." Packed with exotic settings, intrigue, danger, excitement and adventure. Apparent first edition, 306 pages, four coloured plates by Stanley L Wood, brown tones front cover depicts a young rider on an charging horse, on the spine an Arab horseman with levelled rifle follows, gilt spine titles slightly dulled. Hard covers VG with light bump lower front corner, light bruising spine extremities, light/unobtrusive wear to front hinge, tiny ink name date (1925) FFEP, slight cracking along front gutter, text block otherwise excellent, RFEP browned.
