The History of the London Rifle Brigade, 1859-1919. With Introduction by Major-General Sir Frederick Maurice
London, Constable, 1921.
Octavo, xx, 515,  (colophon) pages with 13 maps plus 6 plates, 4 folding maps and an errata slip tipped in on page v. (A separately-issued map case containing 3 large maps - copies of the Official War Office maps as used in France - and 2 itinerary plans, is not present).
Cloth with the Regimental crest in silver on the front; covers a little rubbed and bumped; endpapers and one early opening offset (the latter from an acidic newspaper cutting no longer present); an excellent copy, albeit with the poor-quality paper discoloured.
Inscribed on the flyleaf 'A.F. Blunden, Late No 3 Company, LRB, 1909-1915, 47 Addison Road, Wanstead'; he is probably the man seen gardening in an allotment in the two small snapshot negatives loosely inserted. Also present is a printed notice from the LRB stating that 'This book has been printed by private subscription, with the assistance of Messrs. Constable' and that further copies are one guinea each. + DURAND, Major A.T.M. and Major R.H.W.S.
