A Race For Life

£19.99

Product description

A party of sportsmen, encamped in the forests near Lake Ladoga, during the early spring amuse themselves, while they are waiting for an early start, by telling tales of narrow escapes. Two skaters are in danger from wolves. Another has an adventure with a family of lions, a third confronts a most ferocious and gigantic bear, a fourth, again, is nearly killed by a tiger. Such and such like are the tales which Mr. Whishaw recounts for our benefit, and very spirited narratives they are.

This is an early edition (1898?) Covers in good condition, no DJ . Slight foxing on page edges. Frontispiece protected by transparency. Otherwise good condition. Illustrated by A W Cooper.
