Author: Tristram, H.B. Year: 1865 Edition: First edition Publisher: London, Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Category: Asia West & South Price: € 100.-
Original publisher's cloth, rebacked with the original spine laid down, 8vo., pp. xx, 650. A chromolitographed frontispiece, three more chromolitographs, eight full page b/w plates, 2 folding maps and many textual illustrations.
Some scattered very minor foxing, an unobtrusive and very light waterstain in the upper margin of a part of the pages, neither touching the text nor the plates, and the fore-edge of one folding map frayed. There is a reading list on the ffep with the names of quite a few ministers; so probably this copy once was kept at a remote outpost of the British empire. Further a clean copy.
