(London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1927). 280 x 190 mm. (11 x 7 1/2"). Three Volumes ONE OF 525 COPIES PRINTED ON LARGE PAPER, SIGNED BY HARDY.
Original vellum-backed patterned boards, flat spine, gilt titling, edges untrimmed Engraved frontispiece portrait, signed in pencil by Francis Dodd. Printed in red and black. A couple of corners slightly bruised and rubbed, a touch of faint foxing along lower edge of text blocks, otherwise a fine copy inside and out, the spines unusually clean and bright.
As the subtitle indicates, this work, first published from 1903-08, is "an epic-drama of the War with Napoleon, in three parts, 19 acts, and 130 scenes, the time covered by the action being about 10 years." Though the book appears in the marketplace with some frequency it is becoming increasingly difficult to find this set in fine condition. (ST13165a)
