First edition. Two volumes. Original blue cloth stamped in gilt and green, in dustwrappers. Large octavo. Illustrated with two maps, eight colour plates and 260 illustrations from mono photographs by the author. An excellent very good or better set, the bindings showing only minor rubbing to the extremities. Some minor foxing to the blank reverse of the portrait frontis in volume one, otherwise clean and bright throughout. In the publisher's dark blue cloth bindings with gilt lettering to the spines. Complete with the rare original dustwrappers. Some very minor chipping to the edges of the wrapper for volume one, and some small areas of loss to volume two but overall an exceptionally well preserved set.
