Scouting for Boys. Sir Robert BADEN-POWELL.

Scouting for Boys.

C. Arthur Pearson, 1911.

Fourth edition. Original red boards with black Scouting vignette & titles. A good copy which has been rebacked using original spine. A few light marks to boards. Internally complete with some marginalisation to edges of halftitle and some light slither edge chipping to a few early leaves. Heavy toning to cheap wartime paper stock. Long inscription to half title - scouting related & dated 1949. A rare early pre WWI edition - becoming very difficult to find.

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