I'm sorting out my collection and found some doubles/not needed publications. Please, check my other item's for more books/mags on naval/military/history subjects which I don't need/have doubles. All are in good or very good condition generally - spine tight, some shelf wear possible.
Here for sell is a batch of 11 volumes of Brassey's Annual 1924-1999 - in varied condition but generally are acceptable. Please consult the picture - I can send more if required.
I added more details about some of the volumes below.
Brassey's Naval & Shipping Annual 1924 in acceptable condition - from private collection so there is NO any library marks, stamps, etc. From what I checked, all pages bright and clean. Unfortunately, there is 1 small cut-out made by one of the previous owners - part of the advert at the page III. Also spine is missing. Text block almost divided into two firm pieces but still holds Brassey's Naval & Shipping Annual 1927 in acceptable condition - from private collection so there is NO any library marks, stamps, etc. All pages bright and clean. Unfortunately, there is lots of marks done by kids with color pens. Text block almost divided into two firm pieces but still holds.
Brassey's Annual. The Armed Forces Year-Book 1966 in acceptable condition - spine sunned but gold lettering still visible. Title page is missing. Please consult pictures for more details. From private collection so there is NO any library marks, stamps, etc. All pages bright and clean. Text block holds firmly.
Great description of very interesting times.
Please consult picture or request more if in doubt or ask me.
Maps/pictures/fold-outs are all present as called for. One of them is of Chinese territorial claims in Mongolia and Soviet Union - basically Mongolia + big chunk of Russian Far East is theirs and anything else is negotiable.
Fragment from the page 45:
"The Russians are taking an exceptionally dismal view of the prospects of any resolution of the differences with China as expressed by maps published by that country which openly laid claim to 937,000 square miles of Soviet territory. They even believe that they are seeking for a reversal of the agreements made at Nerchinsk in 1689!"
Reminds current situation in South China Sea today...
