History of the Afghans by J P Ferrier, 1858, a good looking copy


Ferrier, J P: History of the Afghans, translated from the original unpublished manuscript by Captain William Jesse. John Murray 1858 1st edition 8vo
Large folding map of General Ferrier’s travels in Persia & Afghanstan, xxi, 491pp. Excellent copy in contemporary light tan calf gilt very cleverly re-cased with new with elaborately tooled spine with red & black contrasting labels gilt, marbled endpapers matching the page edges, 1864 inscription to a preliminary blank from Arthur Kinnaird to Walter Sherburn Prideaux on leaving Eton, no other ownership markings and a seemingly unread copy with pristine text and neatly folded map. An exceptionally good looking copy of this now rather scarce and important book on Afghanistan.        nov8/2
