Owner’s name to inside of folder & to front cover Pamphlet VI which is a little frayed (this pamphlet only is loosely tipped-in) ; War Department stamp to front cover of Pamphlet VII o/w V.G. This is a superb run of the Royal Engineers Pocket Book pamphlets from numbers 1 to 14 inclusive, together with three separate pamphlets of amendments. Some of these are the first editions from 1936 whilst others were reprinted with amendments in 1940 and 1941, to update instructions for the war. The pamphlets were issued by The War Office with instruction Not to be Published. In addition to the pages of text, they contain a wealth of plates, tables and figures, several of which are folding. A desirable, consecutive, collection that has been well preserved in its uncommonly-found, official binding.
