New York: Twayne Publishers, Inc., 1968. 191p., illustrated with a line map and a chronology; hardbound in 8x5.5 inch maroon leatherette gilt and dust jacket. An ex library copy with an ugly pocket and a titlepage rubberstamp, both overstamped "Withdrawn" (top edge also stamped), these the only damage to the book itself, which has entirely presentable cover and text; while the dj spine panel is a little faded with an inconspicuous label at the heel. Reading copy, structurally very good. Apparently a useful item unaccountably scarce, to judge by prices asked. Twayne's Rulers and statesmen of the world series, 7.
