Afghan Northern Boundary Commission, a scarce wotk of 1887


Yate, Lieutenant A. C. Bombay Staff Corps: England and Ruddia Face to Face in Asia. TRAVELS WITH THE AFGHAN BOUNDARY COMMISSION. William Blackwood [Edinburgh] 1887. 1st edition 8vo.

Folding map of Panjdeh 1885, frontispiece portraits, 5 other plates, vi. [ii], 481pp, large folding map in rear pocket [The March of the Indian Section of the Boundary Commisson fromQuetta to Herat and Nadkis] is an extremely good facsimile copy on the correct type of paper. This copy is ex library although with no signs of use but with withdrawn stamp from Nottingham Public Library and small stamps to title page, margins of some plates and Panjdeh map and on a few other margins. Professionally re-bound in quarter maroon morocco gilt with paper covered boards. Like the author’s brother’s book on the subject this is now a very difficult book to find. The frontispiece portraits include Sir Peter Lumsden [the British Commissioner] and Capt C. E. Yate.      mar5/3
