The Riddle of the Sands.
A record of secret service recently achieved.
First edition, first impression. 8vo. Folding frontispiece map, 3 further maps & charts including one folding, 4pp. advertisements, coeval ownership signature to half-title, minor foxing mostly to terminal ff. and extremities, front free endpaper seemingly replaced some time ago, possibly to remove earlier ownership markings, otherwise internally very good, publisher's near-black cloth blocked and lettered in white, the infamously susceptible lettering to spine retained brightly and to a unusually large degree, usual minor bumping and rubbing, but overall a sharp, tight copy.
