Sport in War
Greeny-bluey cloth-covered boards, with gilt titling to the spine. No dustjacket. The base colour to the spine and a little of the edges is faded but all lettering/titling is still very clear and bright. Page fore-edges dusty/toned with some light brown spotting (foxing). A former owner's pictorial bookplate stuck to the front free endpaper with his name and date written on it in ink. The plain endpapers are lightly browned with the odd spot, but generally internally the book is Very Good, Clean, Bright & Tight. 98 pp Plus 6 full page, full colour plates on shiney 'art' paper, six full page monochome plates and some smaller b/w head and tail pieces all by Lionel Edwards R. I. Plates FINE. With factual accounts from a few famous military leaders, including thanks given to 'The Rt Hon. Winston Churchill for his and others' help. As well as featuring these wonderful Horse pictures, this is a fascinating piece of Social History depicting the days when war meant the Officers had time to 'play' between battles! The colour plates are 'Wellington on "Copenhagen" ' ; 'Marlborough at Ramillies' ; 'Pig Sticking at Assaye' ; 'Coursing in the Peninsular' ; 'Tom Crane' ; 'Hunting at Salonika'. As usual with this marvellous Artist, so pre-eminent in this field, the plates mainly feature HORSES. This book is very large, overweight, and MAY require extra postage for International Buyers, depending on your location - please enquire for an exact cost. Overall a VG copy.
