Chapman & Hall,

"In presenting the following pages to the public, I feel that a certain apology is due, for it is now over three years since the Nile Expedition took place (and most people have forgotten all about it), and several accounts of it, infinitely better and fuller than mine, have been published." [From the Author's Preface]

A lively account of service with the Guards Camel Regiment in the Nile Expedition of 1884-5. Uncommon, particularly so in the cloth.
