Scouting for Boys [with rare WWI dustwrapper].

C. Arthur Pearson, 1916.

Eighth edition. Red boards with black Scouting vignette & titles. Pictorial buff dustwrapper mirroring the image on the boards. A very good+ copy. Very clean boards with lightest wear.

The very good dustwrapper is lightly chipped at head & tail of spine & other leading extremities. Some archival tape strengthening to rear. Toning to spine.

An all time bestseller and at one time second only to the bible. The original blue print for the scout movement. Exceptionally rare in early dustwrapper.
