Nearly fine condition in a fine dustwrapper. The 1859-72 'Pig War' broke out when an American living on a quietly disputed small island in the Gulf of Georgia shot a British pig he found rooting up his garden produce... A highly readable account of a little-known episode in Anglo-American history. Red boards, gilt title to spine. B/w photos.
Neat inscription in pencil to front endpaper.
