Percy F. Westerman
Building the Empire
Jarrold and Sons, Jarrolds: 1914
One of the scarcest Westerman titles in VG / VG-condition. 1st Edition published by Jarrold and Sons in 1914. Lacking one of the 9 plates, nibbles to some page top corners. Inscription dated Dec 1919. I don't know of any other printings other than the First Edition. A pleasing copy of this rare title and worthy of most collections.
