Punjab District Gazetteers. Montgomery District, Part A.

Lahore. Government Printing. 1935. Revised Edition. Stock ID #215892

Four folding colour maps, xi + 311 pages 26.5 x 18 cms; original papered boards (spotted and a trifle scuffed), linen backstrip with paper title label (worn); foredges and endpapers spotted, a few leaves toned, but on the whole in very good condition, the maps particularly bright and clean.

A remarkable association copy: the author Frederick Blyth Wace's copy with his inked initials to the front free endpaper, and his humorous (unpublished?) foreword tipped in opposite the preface, together with a dedication leaf both in Wace's hand and his business card loose within. As a further dedication makes clear, this copy was given by Wace's son (a couple of his loose notes on scrap paper are included), the eminent botanist Nigel Morritt Wace (1929-2005), late head of the Australian National University's department of Biogeography and Geomorphology in 2003 to his fellow academic and marsupial biologist Dr. Hugh Tyndale-Biscoe. Both Wace and Biscoe were born in India and began their schooling in Kashmir at the school founded by Tyndale-Biscoe's father, a Christian missionary and for whom the school is named.

From the collection of Hugh Tyndale-Biscoe.
