BUTLER Major John
Travels And Adventures In The Province Of Assam, During A Residence Of Fourteen Years
Smith Elder and Co
x + (1) 268 pages, frontis + 7 tinted plates, large folding map and folding plan, blank margin of outer edge of the map chipped when badly opened, contents clean free of foxing. Near contemporary brown pebbled cloth, blind stamp ruled borders to board edges and spine. I have been unable to trace the publisher's cloth to compare but possibly this is the original or an early remaindered binding, cloth clean and tight. Most of the book recount the author's military experience. there is a chapter of sporting interest noting capturing elephants and additional chapter detailing hunts for buffalo, tiger, rhinoceros. A vg+ copy Czech 38.
