First Edition, very scarce. Simplicity, Economy, Secrecy in Cabling and Telegraphing. Red cloth hard covers, titles in gilt on front and spine, advert for Raleigh Rogers Port on back board. Boards have some surface discolouration, spine is darkened. Front pastedown and first endpaper have adverts, and similarly at the rear. The front pastedown and first free endpaper are damaged where they have at some point been stuck together then separated; the first and second endpapers seem to be tightly stuck together. Internally very clean, masses of codes for merchants, bankers, brokers, and all business houses, and specially adapted for the use of railway and steamship passengers, travellers, tourists and to the needs of all private individuals who may require to telegraph or cable. Providing no less than 400 million phrases for one complete cipher word each. Fascinating. Sections include travel, shipping and a very extensive general section.
