All working against the tyrannies of the wicked King John, the Sheriff of Nottingham and his retainers. Illustrated by [the author's] 13-year-old daughter, Rebecca, with work as brilliantly coloured as an illuminated manuscript that captures all the delight and drama of the period."
Illustrated with 11 stunning colour plates, plus numerous excellent b&w sketches.
Covers lightly scuffed along extremities; rear cover is creased in its left upper corner. Pages are lightly tanned (standard fare in a 40-year-old paperback), and the last few are slightly creased in their upper corner. Otherwise all are unmarked, free from foxing, and in very good condition for their age. The colour plates are mint. Super-tight binding.
A nice copy of a very rare book.
