Description

A strikingly handsome volume and an excellent reconstruction of the campaign, written in 1926 by a U.S. Naval officer, with detailed maps of troop movements. This is a rare, virtually mint copy, of the First Edition (the book was reissued in 1927 with some additional material), recently deaccessioned from the library of the New York Yacht Club. The club’s stunning vintage bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown, along with a discreet Case and Shelf notation and two additional red inventory number stamps. No other markings.
