FIRE AND SWORD IN THE SUDAN. A personal narrative of fighting and serving the Dervishes. 1879 --1895. By Rudolf C. Slatin Pasha, C.B. Translated by Major F. R. Wingate, C.B., D.S.O., R.A. Illustrated by Talbot Kelly, R.B.A.
London: Edward Arnold, 1896. 636, 32 ad’s pages. Illustrated. Two folding maps at end. Original cloth gilt. Large octavo. First edition; first issue. The binding is not in good shape: the spine is faded and taped at the head; the front endpapers have been replaced; the half-title is soiled. Internally the text is clean, but one of the folding maps has staining to the lower edges and is splitting at folds. A good working copy/a candidate for re-binding.
