Description: London, Jarrolds. 1959, First Edition. Hard Cover with dust jacket. 220 pp, 8vo (8 9/16" H). B&w plates. "Captain Guest recounts engagingly and modestly his experiences on the North-West Frontier and in cantonments all over India. He tells of pigsticking adventures, polo matches, arduous treks through the jungle, in fact of every facet of a soldier's life in peace and war. His stories will be relished by those who served in India and even the reader who has never seen India cannot fail to be captivated by the gusto with which he records a time and scene that will never be repeated in British history." (Two chapters recount Guest's experiences during the siege of Hong Kong and his subsequent escape.) Very light browning to pages, book slightly cocked, light browning to edges of textblock, light browning to spine and board edges, tiny bump to top of spine. Dust jacket has moderate edge wear/wrinkling - mainly along top edge, a few small tears and tiny chips, browning to spine and edges, old price sticker on front panel, minor soiling/scuffs. Good+/Good-.
