Original maroon cloth on boards. Very good, except title lettering rubbed away. No marks. The most incomprehensible volume I have encountered to date.

Edition: Reprint

Seller ID: 006367

Condition: Good Plus to Very Good


Original brown cloth lettered in gold on boards. Ink spots on spine. Previous owner's name. Gives the feeling of an autobiography rather than a report on the war, since more than the latter half is given to activities after returning to Nova Scotia. Nevertheless, both parts of the account have historical merit, and should be of worth to students of the Crimean War as well as to those interested in Nova Scotia's history. Hunters and fishermen should enjoy the last half especially. 309 pp. View more info

Deep violet cloth on beveled boards with gilt panel. Translated by Benjamin Bucknell, Architect.

Original bright red cloth lettered and bordered in black on boards. This author used several pseudonyms, and was known for fantasy and science fiction works.

No writing or damage, although endpapers are tanned. Presumed First Edition, since only one additional publisher was found (in the States) which is outnumbered about 5-1 as to number of copies located. 182 pp. View more info
