Dreadnought: Britain, Germany, and the Coming of the Great War, Massie, Robert K., Random House, New York, 1991. First Edition/First printing. 8vo up to 9½” tall.  1007 pages including illustrations, photographs and maps. Burgundy quarter-cloth over brown boards with gilt spine titles and mapped endpapers. Both unclipped jacket and volume in unread, unmarked condition.  “… Massie brings to life a crowd of glittering figures: the single-minded Admiral von Tirpitz; the young, ambitious Winston Churchill; the ruthless, sycophantic Chancellor Bernhard von Bülow; Britain’s greatest twentieth-century Foreign Secretary, Sir Edward Grey; and Jacky Fisher, the eccentric admiral who revolutionized the British Navy and brought forth for the first true battleship, H.M.S. Dreadnought. Their story, and the story of the era, filled with misunderstanding, missed opportunities, and events leading to unintended conclusions, unfolds like a Greek tragedy in this powerful narrative. Intimately human and dramatic, Dreadnought is history at its most riveting”.  002495 $35
