Imperial Defence and Capture at Sea in War, Rare Book
By Sir Herbert Richmond, commandant of the Imperial Defence College from 1927-28, the book "explains in non-technical language and broad principles which underlie the problem of what is called Imperial Defence -- the defence of the interests, the territories and the persons of all the individuals comprising the British Empire." Scarce book, 21 illustrations. Some foxing on edges and on pages in first half of book, diagonal crease on a dozen or so pages at front, none of which constitute serious problems to use of the book but are mentioned for the record. An advertisement or possibly leaf of dust wrapper was glued to front pastedown but has come loose, leaving a glue mark.
