The World Crisis, full set of six

Thornton Butterworth, London, 1923-1931, first editions. The original work appeared from 1923-27 as 3 volumes published in 4 by Thornton Butterworth: Vol I: 1911-1914; Vol II: 1915; Vols III, IV: 1916-1918 in two parts. Subsequently in 1929, a further volume (4 or 5) appeared as The Aftermath. Then still later in 1931 a final supplementary volume was published The Eastern Front ( or The Unknown War) .An impressive set, uniformly bound in smooth navy blue cloth, gilt title on spine and blind stamped titles on front cover. Numerous maps and plans, some folding and coloured. The only illustrations are 8 photos of key personalities in the final volume. Large attractive books, 6 x 9 inches, this first English edition is much preferred over the American. A worn, used set. All are correct firsts, vols 3,4,5,6 are ex-Boots Library copies. All show wear at spine ends, vol 5 has the usual bubbling of the cloth, all have good clear gilt tiles. Vols 3,4,6 have some spotting on page edges, vol. 2 has an owner name. Far from fine, but a good spine appearance will fill a hole on your shelf at a good price. (A31ab). Item #26840
