Royal Navy & Military Bazaar: In Aid of Princess Christian’s Homes for Disabled Soldiers & Sailors

£300.00

Product description

Royal Navy & Military Bazaar: In Aid of Princess Christian’s Homes for Disabled Soldiers & Sailors
June 19.20.21 1900
Souvenir: being a collection of sketches & drawings by John Charlton, with literary contributions by Harold Begbie, Walter Besant, Guy Boothby, F C Burnand, & John Strange Winter
Dangerfield Printing Company Ltd, London, 1900.
Hardback; 270 x 375 mm; cream card boards with cloth spine; pictorial cover in red by John Charlton repeated on the title page; 49 leaves unpaginated. No dust jacket.
The book is in poor condition in terms of its external appearance and binding. However, the attractive feature of this book, the 30 full page coloured plates of soldiers of different regiments or in action (likely to be the Second Boer War) are generally in good condition.
The covers are very grubby, chipped, and worn around the edges. The front free endpaper and title page are detached from the staples holding the book together. The back free endpaper and the last leaf in the book are almost detached. The contents, still held together by the staples, are coming away from the cloth spine. The staples have rusted discolouring the small area near them. The endpapers and the edges of the leaves are tanned and there is some foxing on the front matter. The title page is annotated in ink: “W J Keays” and “A M Keays”. At the bottom of another leaf, text, is a small address label. There are a few small closed tears here and there.
John Charlton (1849–1917) was an English painter and illustrator of historical and especially battle scenes, mainly from contemporary history. His sketches and drawings in this book will have immediate appeal to those with an interest in his work. Among the regiments illustrated are several from the Indian Army, and there are action sketches from, probably, the Second Boer War.
