About this Item

xii, 229, [3] p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams. Illustrated endpaper. Color Plate. Pocket at rear cover (but the two maps listed are placed internally. This book is the result of two most interesting journeys, devoted to castle-seeking, one in 1924, s covering Wales and the English counties along the Welsh border; the other in 1925, devoted to Somerset, Devon and Cornwall. Of eighty castles described in full, all but six were carefully inspected, and recorded by my own note-book and my son's photographs. The remaining six had to be left unvisited--four of them lie in rather inaccessible corners of the Welsh Marches. The object of this book is to explain the historical and architectural interest of each castle, so that the visitor may appreciate its meaning. Sir Charles William Chadwick Oman KBE (12 January 1860 23 June 1946) was a British military historian of the early 20th century. His reconstructions of medieval battles from the fragmentary and distorted accounts left by chroniclers were pioneering. Good. No dust jacket. Signed by previous owner. Cover has some wear and soiling. Name in ink on fep. Some hinge weakness. Corners bumped. Some edge soiling. Some page discoloration First edition. First U.S. Edition. First printing [stated].
