What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, Illustrated, Leather Binding, Rebound

An attractive French copy of this novel by Claude Farrère, signed by the author. With thirteen illustrations by French painter William Lambrecht, collated and complete. With the author's ink inscription to the half title, 'Hommage de l'auteur' meaning, 'with very best wishes from the author'. Writing under the pseudonym Claude Farrère, Frédéric-Charles Bargone was a French Navy officer and writer. Although several of his novels are set in exotic locations in Asia and Northern Africa, the present novel is set in Toulon in France, and draws on his experiences as a Navy officer.

Condition

In a quarter calf binding over marbled boards. Externally, very smart, with just some very light rubbing to the front joint and the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are a little age-toned but clean throughout.

Very Good Indeed
