What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first edition of this work. A charming little book following the adventures of a young British nobleman on the Crusades. Osbert Lancaster said of this work that it is meant to give harmless enjoyment to a youthful reader, while at the same time familiarising them to the social background of a remote but glorious period in history.

Amicably illustrated throughout by the author. With price-clipped dustwrapper.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, lovely. Dustwrapper is price-clipped and excellent, with only minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Illustrated throughout.
