First edition, decidedly uncommon: Copac locates only one copy (Imperial War Museum) in British and Irish institutional libraries, OCLC records no copies and KVK only that at the National Library of Australia. The maps include a large folding map of Bulgaria (showing road and rail routes, annotated in pencil with the names of towns and with a note in the top margin: “Code 1920:”) and two of the important port of Dedeagach (now Alexandroupoli in Greece) – ceded to Greece after the defeat of Bulgaria in the Great War.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. 10 monochrome plates, 6 maps (3 folding coloured). Pencilled ownership inscription of “Robbins” on front free endpaper. Spine sunned, a little shaken, back inner hinge split but sound. A very good copy.
