Item Description: 1896-1904, 1904. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Substantial original photograph album to the South Wales Borderers / 24th Regiment. A private album possibly maintained by Captain Casson, who is named in a number of photographs. Much of the Album relates to successful sporting activities by the Regiment, namely Polo, Tug-of-war, Tobogganing, Football, Boxing, Gymnastics & Football. Each sport normally has a large plate photograph of the team (all named) in their sporting kit and often some images of the event and the location. The quality of all the images is very high with most individuals being easily recognisable. Other sections include Officer characatures (based on photographs and all named), and a selection of Polo ponies. Locations include Egypt (with at least a Battalion paraded in front of one of the pyramids), Davos (where the Tabogganing took place with some excellent images of an officers group gathered around their sledges etc.), Gibraltar, India (where the inter-Regimental Football Tournament took place) and Brecon with what are probably more domestic photographs of the Beacons and a lady on horseback. etc. etc. Over 130 photographs, almost all of a very high quality and many 10ins X 12ins. An important record of this famous Regiment around the turn of the 19th century, contained in a very large half leather album. Please confirm postage costs. Bookseller Inventory # 7187
