What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce

First edition. Very scarce. With a colour frontispiece by Penrhyn Stanley Adamson, known as Penrhyn Stanlaws, a Scottish cover artist and film director. Rubina was a fine young woman who looked twenty but was only eighteen. George was a survivor of Puritan soldiery who had seen evil. Yet he was certainly more taking to the female eye than the average young man of the village of Hockingham. Written by James Blyth, a prolific British author recognised for his contribution to science fiction in the future war genre. Publisher's advertisements to the rear.
