A LITERARY & HISTORICAL ATLAS OF AFRICA AND AUSTRALASIA.  EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY NO. 662., Bartholomew, J.G.
1 Bartholomew, J.G. A LITERARY & HISTORICAL ATLAS OF AFRICA AND AUSTRALASIA. EVERYMAN'S LIBRARY NO. 662.
London J.M. Dent & Sons Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
218 pp, 6 7/8" H. No publication date, but an early edition as there is no mention of the First World War. Map endpapers and decorated title page. Profusely illustrated with colour and b&w maps, plus 10 plates depicting coins. "The extent of the land and sea that (this book) covers, between the extremes of Algiers and Samoa, is immense in latitude and longitude; while in points of history it ranges from the oldest to the newest civilisation; as suggested by Karnak, or the new capital of Australia, Canbena (sic). Moreover, in accord with the general idea of these map-books, the effect of the map in illustrating history, the growth and multiplicity of peoples and cities, and the vast possibilities of unworked regions, is kept in sight throughout these pages. The record includes the wars that have passed, from Napoleon's Campain in Egypt of 1798 and General Gordon's last stand at Khartoum, to the battles of Spion Kop and Colenso, and the sieges of Ladysmith and Mafeking in the late South African War. It covers the routes of the great travellers, Mungo Park, Livingstone and Stanley; Stuart, Burke and Wills; and it touches at Vailima in order to recall Robert Louis Stevenson and his South Sea experiences, at the end of his days, as they are pictured by his Samoa book of 1892..." Includes "A Brief Survey of the Coinage of Africa and Australasia" by G.C. Brooke, "A Gazetteer of Towns and Places in Africa and Australasia having a Literary or Historic Interest" and an Index. Slight fading to spine color, minor edge wear - tiny tear at top of spine, minor bumps at bottom edge of front cover, book lightly cracked in several places - book is sound, small split and very small piece missing at bottom of inside rear gutter, slight scattered color loss on top of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, light fading to spine and flap-fold color, small tear at top of spine.

Alleged to be the illegitimate son of Henry VIII, he persuaded Elizabeth to allow him to join an expedition to Florida. He n ever arrived. Instead, he stole the supplies and befriended the rebel Shane O'Neill in Ireland. This was only the first of many incidents in an adventurous career, in which he figured in almost every kind of treachery and desperate exploit. Stucley lived - and died - furiously. The story of his life is packed with adventure, intrigue - and humour. He was killed on a Morcoccan battlefield, having joined the Portuguese King's Crusade in North Africa."

THE LEGION MARCHES:  THE WOES AND WRONGS OF THE FOREIGN LEGION., Klose, Fritz, Ex-Legionary.  Translated by Claud W. Sykes.
9 Klose, Fritz, Ex-Legionary. Translated by Claud W. Sykes. THE LEGION MARCHES: THE WOES AND WRONGS OF THE FOREIGN LEGION.
London John Hamilton Hard Cover Good- 
287 pp, 8 3/4" H. No date, but 1935 has been pencilled on the title page under the translator's name. Red cloth with gilt lettering on spine and front board. 20 b&w plates (29 b&w photographs) - collated. "On every possible occasion France boasts of being a loving mother to her adopted children - whom she has rescued from hunger and misery to lead along the paths of glory and fame. Court-martials, brutal treatment, heavy sentences for trifling offences, callous doctors, and unspeakable sanitary conditons, all combine to tell a different tale. 'Marche ou creve!' Give your last ounce of strength or break down! 'Honneur, valeur et discipline!' are also embroidered in gold and silver letters on the Legion's banners - at least on those of the original regiments. The word 'discipline' has now acquired such a notorious significance in the Legion that on the standards of newly-formed regiments it is replaced by 'fidelite'. But when the Legion goes on active service the old principle of 'marche ou creve' still holds good. The following chapters will prove the truth of my assertions that 'la grande nation' rewards the superhuman efforts of her legionaries with the basest ingratitude." From the Preface. Previous owner's small name stamp on front pastedown, book is cracked at two places - pages are holding firmly, light to moderate edge wear with wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, slight fading to spine color, various size water marks on boards and spine, splashes of dye from board cloth on fore edge of text block, slight corner bumps.

HELL IN THE FOREIGN LEGION.  (TRANSLATION OF "AFRIKA WEINT".), Lohndorff, Ernst F.  Translated by Gerard Shelley.
11 Lohndorff, Ernst F. Translated by Gerard Shelley. HELL IN THE FOREIGN LEGION. (TRANSLATION OF "AFRIKA WEINT".)
New York Greenberg 1932 First American Edition Hard Cover Good 
349 pp, 7 7/8" H. Brown cloth with dark brown lettering/emblem on spine. "In writing the account of my life as a member of the French Foreign Legion, I am aided partly by memory and partly by the blurred and faded scraps of paper which I carried about with me in the Sahara and the Atlas Mountains. I have no intention of perpetrating one of the usual tirades against France, for I have been all over the world and have friends of every nation. My reminiscences serve rather as an accusation against the conscience of the world and the League of Nations that such a thing as a Foreign Legion should still exist at all. How did I enter the Legion? As a volunteer like everybody else. No, I really was not dazed or besotted by the legendary agents of France who are supposed to menace the safety of Germany - I went of my own accord! - Unemployment, desire for warmth, bread, and a woman brought me to the Legion. I ran away several time before I succeeded in escaping from that part of Africa where the soil is saturated with the sweat, blood, and unavailing tears of tens of thousands of men - In one garrison life may be tolerable for a soldier who demands no luxury, because the men in command are human - But in another it may be hell on earth and the officers and subordinates like laughing devils poking the flames! My time in the Legion is engraved indelibly upon my brain. Luck, and courage born of despair, or Allah, the mysterious God of the desert, have saved me. Now let me tell you how it began- " From the Introduction. Ernst Lohndorff (1899-1976) was a German sailor/adventurer/author. He signed up with the Foreign Legion in 1920 under an assumed name, but appears to have deserted from Algeria after two months. This volume, although written in an autobiographical style, is almost certainly a combination of his own experiences and the fiction for which he was popular before the Second World War. Previous owner's small name stamp on front pastedown, light browning to endpapers, very light browning to pages, light to moderate edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and at corners, book is slightly cocked, browning to edges of text block, very small stain on fore-edge of text block, light rubbing/soiling and a few very faint liquid marks.

OVER TO TUNIS: THE COMPLETE STORY OF THE NORTH AFRICAN CAMPAIGN., Marshall, Howard.
12 Marshall, Howard. OVER TO TUNIS: THE COMPLETE STORY OF THE NORTH AFRICAN CAMPAIGN.
London Eyre & Spottiswoode 1943 First Edition Hard Cover Good Fair Maps by L. Potter. 
168 pp, 8 3/4" H. Map endpapers + 14 additional b&w maps. "It was Howard Marshall's job to broadcast the Tunisian campaign to the world. No other eye-witness not an actual protagonist has so complete a knowledge of the facts, and in this book he is able to give what could obviously not be given in a broadcast commentary - a balanced, comprehensive and outspoken account of both the military and political sides. The book opens with the first landings in November, 1942, and the failure of the first bid for Tunis. It then traces the development of the small original landing force into a magnificent army, and moves in a crescendo towards the final pulverising attack. The author analyses the reasons for the Allied success and the lessons to be derived from it. He deals at length with the political situation: the plots and counterplots of French political parties; the appointment and assassination of Darlan; the problems of General Giraud's administration; the whole confused background of intrigue and conspiracy in Algiers. The author also discusses the problems of broadcasting from a theatre of war, and describes the special complications of the work of a radio reporter." Some tiny light foxing marks on endpapers, darkening and three scratch marks to top of text block, light browning to edges of text block, book is slightly cocked, small bump to top edge of boards, minor soiling, small light stain on spine. Dust jacket has soiling, large piece missing from top of spine and part of rear panel, several small edge chips and tears, small piece missing from middle of spine, light edge wrinkling, moderate edge wear on spine.
