(price-clipped) [lightly bumped at corners, faint dampstain at bottom right corner of front cover, small bookseller stamp at bottom corner of front pastedown; jacket worn and torn across top edge, several small tears elsewhere, moderate soiling overall]. "'Cornet' (the nom de guerre of a distinguished officer in the late Indian Army) is well known to readers of Blackwood's Magazine for his stories of life and sport on the North-west Frontier. This is his first book. The title bears a nostalgic reference to the old days when British officers came to know intimately the Pathan tribesmen and often formed deep friendships founded on a common love of hunting and adventure, and this book, which successfully evokes the spirit of the country and its people, has so many good stories that it will appear not only to those who know India but to many others." Sounds rather like imperialist fantasy-porn, if you ask me; wonder how many Indians were feeling nostalgic for "the old days" along about 1951?
