First Edition. Octavo, original orange boards, spine titled in gilt. 287 pp., Index, illustrations, maps. A fine copy in a near-fine, unclipped dust jacket, one minute hole to the jacket along the front spine hinge. The 'Book Society Alternative Choice' wrap-around band is present and still fully intact, albeit slightly browned on the spine. Certainly, rare with the wrap-around band.


"William Howard Russell's despatches covering the Crimean war are one of the classics of war reporting as well as being a mine of source material for historians. More than this; they are in a great tradition of journalism, for it was through their publication in The Times that the British public was eventually made aware of the mismanagement of the army."
