Very uncommon first edition. The war correspondent, travel writer and explorer visited the Balkans, especially Albania and Montenegro during the 1878 Russo-Turkish war. He observed that 'the Albanian or Montenegrin never leaves his doorstep without buckling on a very arsenal of formidable-looking weapons' (p. 71).
