Spine slightly discolored, else very good and sound. "The true story of the Repulse at the Redan ... The journal was written upon the spot it describes and was printed from notebooks sent back to England and not very critically revised ... I have attempted to make this work practically useful to those who may contemplate a trip to Italy, Constantinople, or the Crimea; and I have tried to accomplish this without encumbering my readers with the dull, often untrustworthy details of a guidebook" (Preface).
