PEEL, Sidney The Binding of the Nile and the New Soudan. Edward Arnold, 1904.

8vo. Original blue ribbed cloth, lettered in gilt; pp. viii, 288, 16 (advertisements); mezzotint frontispiece of Mehemet Ali, one fold-out colour-printed map; previous owner's inscription in pencil at front, light offsetting from endpapers and frontispiece, else a near-fine copy.
First edition. "I have tried to tell in outline the story of the regulation of the Nile and some of its consequences. A rash project, perhaps, for one who is not an engineer; but, then, this book is not written for engineers, and politics enter largely into it" (Preface).
