AFGHAN WARS AND THE NORTH-WEST FRONTIER, 1839-1947., Barthorp, Michael.
6 Barthorp, Michael. AFGHAN WARS AND THE NORTH-WEST FRONTIER, 1839-1947.
Cassell, (London, 2002), reprint. 
184 pp, large 8vo (9 13/16" H), laminated, flexible covers. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "British forces in India were in almost constant battle with Afghan hill tribes, the most implacable guerilla fighter in history. 'Frontier Warfare' was one of the most important tasks for the British army in India. It was a strange war fought to its own rules. Prisoners were seldom taken by either side. Over the years, the British introduced armoured vehicles and aircraft, but the key features of warfare on the Afghan frontier remained the same from Victorian times to World War II and the British withdrawal from the sub-continent in 1947. From the army immortalized by Kipling to the end of the British Empire in India, Michael Barthorp reveals how the British dealt with Afghanistan." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor bump at corners of covers, very small bumps along bottom edges o f c overs and one on fore-edge of rear covers, specks of light color offset on rear cover - probably from another book.

Pencorp, (London), [1991]. 
200 pp, large 8vo (9 3/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w and color illustrations. "The story of Slough Estates is the unlikely tale of a group of businessmen who bought up the entire surplus stock of British army vehicles used in World War One and ended up as a powerful force in the nation's property development industry...(It) is also the story of a company that made a town. With a community of just 15,000 in 1918, the town of Slough today boasts a prosperous population of almost 100,000 with a density inextricably linked to a host which takes an extraordinary interest in its community welfare...The company could not have grown without the patronage of a good number of businesses down the years, many of which started their own corporate stories on the estate. Some, like No-Pe-Lo Potatoes and the O'Cedar Mop Co., have long since vanished but other have survived the roll call of business life, among them Mars, Flexello, Berlei, Aspro, Horlicks and Black and Decker. This is their story, too." Small light bump to top corners, small bump with closed tear/wrinkles/scuff at bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small closed tear at bottom edge of front panel. VG-/VG
