Macmillan and Co. Limited. London. 1941 and 1944.
Three volumes. The rare Three-Volume, War time, Macmillan Abridged Reprint Edition in Dust Jackets. First and third volumes are the first Macmillan issues, the second is a 1944 reprint of the 1941 Macmillan issue. Illustrated throughout all 3 volumes with folding maps and plans. Very good bright and fresh copies throughout in the publishers navy blue cloth bindings with gilt lettering to the spines. The original dustwrappers are all in very good condition with all prices still intact. Neat previous owners name on the front panel of the first volume, with the same person's bookplate on the front pastedown endpaper. Some minor rubbing and marking to the wrappers but generally these are all in very good condition making this a superior set. ------ The Unknown War is actually the remaining 600 sheets of the First edition of 1931, bought by Macmillan when the original publisher Thornton Butterworth closed in 1940 and issued with a cancel title page. A difficult set to find in dustwrapper.
