GREAT WARRIORS BY NELSON WELLINGTON NAPOLEON (BKS 1010)
Reference Code: BKS 1010
Under the title ‘Great Warriors’, this tome contains two books bound in one volume. The first book is titled ‘The Story of Nelson and Wellington’, and the second is ‘The Story of Napoleon Bonaparte’. The former contains 136 pages, the latter 144 pages; the texts of both books are accompanied by numerous illustrations. A 32-page illustrated catalogue of other titles by the publisher is at the end of the volume. The book was published by W. & R. Chambers, Limited; it is undated, but was probably published in the late 19th or early 20th century, as indicated by an ink inscription dated 1900 on the reverse of the front free endpaper. Oddly, the author(s) of the books are not mentioned. The book is approximately 5.3 inches wide, 7.2 inches tall, and 1.2 inches thick.
The book is in good condition. Boards are bent at the corners and display rubbing along the edges. Gilt titling is still bright, but slightly faded. The binding is solid. Page edges exhibit foxing, as do the endpapers and some of the internal pages. But overall the book is clean, with no tears, stamps, creases, or other major flaws.
