Royal 8vo. Original printed wrappers; pp. [ii], 62, highly illustrated throughout after photographs and drawings; wire-stitching oxidized, recased, otherwise very good.
This is an extremely rare restricted military publication, a handbook for jungle warfare, against the Japanese in Southeast Asia and Malaya. - The only other copy we were able to locate is in the Imperial War Museum. According to one collector's blog previous edition had not been very good. 'The new edition doubled the circulation of the previous edition of MTP No. 9. It had a new format that according to General Auchinleck was to be different from the usual, dull training manuals and was aimed at popularising training. It included photographs and cartoons for the first time in order to make it more appealing to officers and men' (http://stampomania.blogspot.com/2010/09/jungle-book-military-training-pamphlet.html).
