The Story of the Malakand Field Force, Colonial edition on thick paper

Longmans, Green & Co., London, 1898, The Colonial issue of the first edition. This edition, intended for sale in India and the Colonies, used the same printing plates as the first home issue, so has all the same errors. It is bound in pictorial grey cloth. Latest estimates are that about 1100 of these were issued clothbound. Most copies of the Colonial edition are bound on thinner laid paper compared to the home edition. But Cohen (see p. 17) reports that 46 sets of home edition sheets on the thicker wove paper. Here is an example of this scarce and obscure variant. (Cohen A1.2.f) This copy does include the 13 item a errata slip This copy in typical colonial condition with spine nearly unreadable and decorative cover scuffed and worn at corners. The tissue guard is absent from the frontis portrait. The page edges are off white but not spotted. There is foxing of various strength throughout the text. All maps are present and the folding maps are neatly folded. Page xv (list of maps) is loose. The photo with two books shows this copy alongside a normal thin Colonial edition. This is truly for the man who has every edition, although I would prioritize this after the Colonial wraps edition and the Copp Clark edition. (A1ab). Item #6171
