NotesFirst edition. "Prichard (1825-74) served with the 15th Native Infantry in Rajputana. According to George Bruce Malleson, he became disgusted with the military and left his regiment in 1858. Apparently he became a capable literary talent during his years in India" (Sorsky). Educated at Rugby, Prichard had previously seen action at Chillianwala and Gujerat during the Second Anglo-Sikh War (1848-49), subsequently training as a barrister and practising in India, he was for a time editor of the Delhi Gazette. An uncommon account, just 9 copies on Copac.
Octavo. Original red pimple-grained cloth, title gilt to spine, blind ornamental panels to sides, pale grey surface-paper endpapers.
Binding sympathetically furbished (extremities of spines and corners consolidated), spine just a little cocked, some dark marking to covers, a couple of leaves carelessly opened (with minor loss at head) yet a very good copy, sound and clean.
