530pp. Octavo [19.5 cm] Pebbled red cloth covered boards with gilt stamped titles on the spine and front cover. Very good. The covers are barely perceptibly cocked. There are embossed stamps from a previous owner on the front free endsheet and title page. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with general mild rubbing. The paper at the head of the spine is just a little bumped and chipped. In addition, there are a couple of small chips in the bottom edge. There is a tiny closed tear in the top edge of the rear panel. The jacket also has numerous faint scratches. The internal, non-visible side, is just a bit age-toned and stained. Price-clipped. An attractive dust jacket.
From the Preface- "We are living in perilous times. There is a rapidly growing disregard for law and order in the world. Many are contending for great changes in governments. Greed has entered the hearts of most men. Tyranny has raised its head and oppression has descended like a cloud over much of the earth. Governments are being overthrown and there are great changes with blood and carnage in the offing."
