In good condition, some signs of age.
1st edition HB. Published in Dublin in 1915. 787 pages with illustrations and plates. Authors: J.C.Leask and H.M.McCance. An essential reference for anyone interested in the history of the 1st of Foot. This is an absolute tome (2.7 kg) hence the high postage. Priced significantly lower than any other copy currently offered online.
Wear to cover. Some yellowing and spotting to pages but overall a very good solid copy of this scarce regimental history.
603 City of Edinburgh Bomber Squadron (based at RAF Turnhouse) digest from 1937. Fascinating publication as the Squadron was re-designated a fighter squadron the following year.
Soft back containing 66 pages of interesting information, illustrations and photographs related to the Squadron's activities over the previous year.
Minimal wear, very good condition. Scarce and desirable.
Authored by Col. W. Guinness. First edition HB. 197 pages. Published in Edinburgh in 1886.
Signed by the author. A handwritten note inside reads: "Lt Colonel Cecil Price late 72nd Highlanders from Colonel W Guinness Commanding 1st Battalion Seaforth Highlanders 4th March 1886". This history later belonged to Major-General Sir John E. Laurie CBE DSO who commissioned into the Seaforth Highlanders in 1912. His personal book plate is fixed inside the front cover.
Some small marks and scratches to dark green cover. Also some foxing present to pages but binding is tight and condition good overall. A scarce history (I believe only 40 copies were published) with excellent provenance.
Authored by F. Loraine Petre: Wilfried Ewart and Major-General Sir Cecil Lowther. First edition HB. Published in London in 1925. 349 pages of text, maps and award lists. Very useful WW1 reference.
Minor wear and marks to cover. Slight yellowing and some spotting inside but overall a good copy.
