From the flyleaf: ” The author, in this penetrating study of early Victorian Society and the British military system, has been entirely concerned with an attempt to see Smith as he was, in the context of his time and not to laud his dash and vigour, to destroy his credibility or to make fun of his eccentric behavour. This biography reveals how Early Grey, responsible for the colonies in Russell’s cabinet, dominated Sir Harry to such an extent that he failed as high commissioner and had consequently to be recalled.” Includes 5 maps (2 of which are at the rear end-papers). 296 Pages. Contents clean and tightly bound. 1st Edition. Condition: Very good. Dust jacket: Good. Edge-wear to all extremities. Small closed tears to top edge. Binding: Hardcover. Light edge.wear.
