By: Orczy, Baroness

Price: £20.00

Publisher: London, Hodder & Stoughton: 1913

Edition: Reprint

Seller ID: R24512

Condition: Very Good


340pp, red boards, gilt to spine, blind-stamped figure of an old man to front board, slight fading to spine, light wear only. General light foxing to contents, page edges browned, a clean tight copy without dustwrapper. Undated but advert facing title page refers to the publication of 'El Dorado' in this year (published in 1913 and was the first of the Scarlet Pimpernel books with Hodder & Stoughton). By inference therefore, this book must be a 1913 reprint. Scarce. View more info
