RAGS OF GLORY. CLOETE, STUART

First Edition, Collins, London, 1963. Hard Cover, Red cloth boards, with gilt title, author and publisher on the spine. The binding is sound, with square, un-bumped corners. There is a very little shelf wear to the tail end of the boards, head and tail of spine lightly bumped. If not for sellotape stains The boards would be near fine, (It seems that the dust wrapper was repaired with sellotape on the inside, the fatty residue of the sellotape has unfortunately marked the boards, both front and back). End papers are maps, paste down end-papers still bears some residue of the ghastly sellotape, front free end paper has a booksellers ink stamp with price on it. Page opposite title page has a previous owners name written on it otherwise the contents are clean and bright an occasional fingerprint is some-times discernible. Dust Jacket is illustrated and has NOT been clipped, it is bumped, with scuffing and minor chips, Head corner of front wrap has been badly "gouged", and front head corner nearest spine has a small chunk missing, but is otherwise complete, And of course it has the terrible sellotape stains. Wrapper is now in a removable protective cover. From the blurb: "This impressive novel of the Boer War is painted on the immense canvas of the African veld - thousands of square miles of it - where Boers, British soldiers, women and children move over the plains and mountains in battles among burning farms".
