About This Item

London: Kegan Paul, Trench, & Co, 1887. First Edition. Cloth. Near fine. Signed first edition of The Ballad of Hadji and Other Poems by General Sir Ian Hamilton.. Twelvemo, vi, 72pp, [1]. Blue cloth, title stamped in gilt on spine and front cover. Frontispiece with tissue cover. Rear hinge starting, transference to endpapers, solid text block. Bookplate on front pastedown. This copy is signed by the author on the front free endpaper. A scarce piece. Sir Ian Hamilton (1853-1947) was a British Army general who served as Commander in Chief of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force in the Gallipoli Campaign of World War I. A career military officer, Hamilton was wounded in action at the Battle of Majuba during the First Boer War, leaving his left hand permanently injured. He also served in the Second Boer War, the Russo-Japanese War and finally the First World War. His command of the Allied Mediterranean Expeditionary Force at Gallipoli in 1915, at the age of 62, was his final military command. His orders were to gain control of the Dardanelles from the Ottoman Empire and to capture Constantinople, but his invasion stalled and resulted in heavy casualties. Hamilton was recalled to London and lived until 1947.
