This slender compilation of speeches about Gandhi and "Our Duty in India" was simultaneously published in especially handsome hardcover and softcover editions, both much prized today by collectors.

Description: This is a handsome softcover copy of the First English edition in very bright condition. The spine has faded somewhat and there appears to be a sticker shadow across the price printed on the spine but the volume is virtually mint otherwise, with just a touch of faint foxing to the fore-edges.

Preserved in a stunning full-leather solander of orange Morroco.
