1881 Hereward the Wake, Last of the English
What Our Customers Say...
Fine Binding, Leather Binding, Scarce, Signed Binding
The scarce two volume 1881 'Eversley Edition' of Charles Kingsley's historical adventure novel concerning the Anglo-Saxon resistance to the Norman Conquest. In lovely half morocco signed bindings from Bickers and Son.
Kingsley's novel follows the historical Anglo-Saxon figure Hereward as he leads the resistance against the Normans from a base in Ely. First published in 1866, this was Kingsley's final historical novel, and was instrumental in elevating Hereward into an English folk-hero.
In half morocco signed bindings, with paper covered boards. Small loss of leather to head of volume I front joint, with rubbing to paper of front board of volume II. Internally, firmly bound. Pages clean and bright, with minor spotting to head of volume II title page.
