LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London.: Griffith and Farran.. 1876.. 26 full page and text engravings, x + 340pp, 30 page publisher's catalogue bound in at rear, all edges gilt, new endpapers, 4 x 2.5cm piece missing outer edge of title page repaired with plain paper, pages 177 - 192 missing replaced with photocopied leaves, inked number upper outer corner title page, some soiling throughout. Pictorial cloth binding gilt rubbed in a places. "In the form of a personal narrative, assumed to be related by a Sergeant of the Royal Engineer Corps, the following story is illustrative of the success of British Arms in China, not only in defeating the Imperial Army, but assisting in crushing the great Taiping Rebellion, through the generalship of Colonel Gordon, R.E., who commanded the Chinese Disciplined Force, designated "The Ever-Victorious Army". Where the salient points of these memorable events are narrated, the facts recorded in their history are strictly adhered to: so also are the secondary features of the narrative, in describing the customs and manners of the Chinese - consequently the amount of fiction is infinitessimal." From the preface. In spite of the obvious condition faults the volume presents well - a rather better than reading copy of an unusual title. .
