Methuen & Co. Ltd. London. 1923.
FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo. (8.9 x 6 inches). Publishers blue cloth with gilt ruled lines and lettering to the spine. Front board ruled and lettered in blind. Some offsetting to the endpapers, from the dustwrapper, and a little spotting to the page edges but overall a near fine bright copy in the scarce original dustwrapper. The wrapper is toned to the spine and edges of the panels and has some minor chipping and rubbing, and a couple of small closed tears - without loss, but is still a very good example. -- Marriott was a historian and Conservative politician, being the MP for Oxford (1917-22) and York (1923-29). He was knighted the year after this publication, in 1924.
