About this Item

A clean, sound copy of the first edition, withdrawn from a library. Library markings are minimal, and there is no evidence that the book circulated. It is bound in blue-gray library buckram. One pencilled margin notation is noted. There are small smudges on a few pages. The paper has held up very well, and is only slightly age-toned. The first edition of this work is to be desired because of the exceptional illustrations, which are very crisp steel engravings (the title page claims there are 500). In the Preface, dated 1904, the author states that he wrote the book because he foresees a coming world war. How right he was, but the details are not correct. "Should Japan be successful in the present war with Russia, inside of a decade there would be in China an army of three million Chinamen, equipped with modern weapons and in possession of railroads. What could prevent this horde from sweeping westward?"; Ex-library. Bookseller Inventory # 30186
