Very rare British counter-terrorism booklet entitled ''Palestine Pamphlet / Terrorist Methods With Mines and Booby Traps''. Published December 1946 from the British ''Headquarters, Chief Engineer, Palestine and Transjordan'', the 38pp. booklet is both an instruction manual on how to detonate various types of mines and booby traps, and also a history of terrorist activity in 1946 undertaken by Jewish groups. Plates of various attacks are included, such as the partially destroyed King David Hotel in July 1946, and the demolished building in the David Quarter, Jerusalem, bombed in November 1946. Of that attack the booklet reads, ''This incident is included for its illustration of the extreme methods which Jewish Terrorists may employ when planning deliberate murder.'' All seven plates are present, including the frontispiece showing a British soldier ''Disarming a Jewish Wooden Box Mine''. Softcover booklet measures 6.75'' x 8.5''. Toning to pages, and light wear and soiling. Overall very good condition.
