Book Condition: Good with no dust jacket


Good blue cloth-covered boards. The spine is faded, some patching to the front cover and a couple of corners lightly 'bumped', but the covers are sound. Some uniform tanning/browning to the page fore-edges/paper, and some light spotting/patching to an odd page here and there in the text block, but overall internally the book is generally clean, tight and bright. A former owners' neat name and date to the front free endpaper o/w NO other Inscriptions or Marks. (viii) + (4) + 377pp. Illustrated in b/w with 9 plates and 5 maps. Overall, apart from the minor flaws as noted above, this is a good sound copy of the first edition of this now classic work. "The Rebecca Riots in West Wales began in the summer of 1839. They ceased as suddenly as they had started, and for three and a half years the countryside was undisturbed. Then, in the winter of 1842, they broke out again with greater violence. By day the countryside seemed quiet, but at night fantastically disguised horsemen, many dressed as women, careered along highways and through narrow lanes on their mysterious errands..." .
