Description: "Alexander the Great, who lived more than 2,000 years ago, was not only a great soldier who conquered the whole of the then-known world, but also a wise and just ruler.
This is his story."
Vividly evocative full-page colour illustrations on every other page. Pastedowns and endpapers feature an excellent three-colour map showing the route Alexander took during his campaign, as well as those taken by his generals.
Pictorial matt boards have some minor specks on the front and some light soiling on the rear. Spine and corners are bumped. Internally, the book is in excellent condition for its age, and is completely free from foxing or any other marking. Pages are very tightly bound. Though lacking its dust jacket, it is assumed this is the first edition.
