12mo. Original red cloth-backed yellow paper-covered boards; pp. 100 + [4, ads], photographic illustrations; fine.
First edition, scarce in such good condition. A fascinating pre-war official publication on gas masks and surviving gas attacks, showing that concerns about chemical warfare were present even two years before the start of hostilities.
