What Our Customers Say...

Description

Fine Binding, First Edition, Illustrated, Leather Binding, Signed Binding

The first edition of this very scarce work.

Bound by Morrell.

Complete in two volumes.

A tragic historical fiction novel, following the final five months of the life of Anne Boleyn.

An extra-illustrated copy, with a total of fifty-four plates bound in. 

Volume I is illustrated with a frontispiece, one colour plate, and twenty-six plates.

Volume II is illustrated with a frontispiece, one colour plate, and twenty-four plates.

Written by Reginald Farrer, who also wrote a number of non-fiction works. This was considered to be his best novel.

From the library of W. A. Foyle at Beeleigh Abbey, with his morocco bookplate to the front paste down. William Foyle was the co-founder of Foyles bookshop, founding the leading bookshop in 1903 alongside his brother. He purchased Beeleigh Abbey during the Second World War, an impressive twelfth century monastery in Essex, which became home to his library, one the largest private libraries in England.
