London, Simpkin Marshall, 1929.
Octavo, 588 pages with 27 maps and plans (several folding, and several in colour) plus a large colour folding map in an end pocket.
Cloth; an excellent copy with the dustwrapper split along the folds, creased, chipped, worn and torn with some loss (including approximately one third of the spine panel).
With the ownership signature of George Melrose Elton Mayo (1918-1994), then of the 2/ 7th Field Regiment (which participated in the battle of Alamein and the landing at Tarakan during WW2). There is a further (and enigmatic) inscription, possibly in Mayo's earlier hand.
