About this Item

Oxford University Press, Karachi, Delhi, London, etc.; 1975 - Three volumes. Hardcover Very Good saffron colored cloth with bright gold gilt lettering with blue cloth label with title in gold on spines.pp. [xl] [1] 356; [xvii] [1] 473; and [xix] 357 and fold-out map. All volumes have prior owner's signature in neat pen at the topr right corner of front free endpapers. On the bottom right corners of the front free endpapers is a neat small bookseller stamp in purple ink stating Ferozsons Lahore which is a bookstore in Pakistan in 1894. All volumes have some rippling on inside on the pastedowns that appear to have been due to the glue being used in the binding which also resulted in light offsetting on the opposite free endpaper. Bottoms of all volumes have light shelf rubbing. Some light dings along text block resulting in edges of pages with a tough of creasing. Internally clean and bright with strong bindings. All in original dust jackets that have sunned spines, light soiling and creasing to all exposed edges else Very Good. First published by John Murray, London, 1834, the Oxford Press reprint is the fourth edition and part of their "Oxford in Asia Historical Reprints" series - reproduces both the title page of that printing as well as its Preface, the latter augmented by a new Introduction by Major-General James Lunt, C.B.E. Apart from the map, the 8 illustrations found in the 1834 printing are also reproduced: two in the first volume, including the frontispiece; two in the second; and four in the third volume, which features the lithograph portrait of Maharaja Runjeet Singh as its frontispiece this however was not the original frontis as that one was in too poor a condition to copy this fact is stated in the notice that is laid in. Wonderful folding map in third volume as well. Bookseller Inventory # TM007-TRAV
