The Indian Scout, a Story of the Aztec City,

£14.99

Product description

Everyman's Library series. Translated from the French, probably by Sir F. C. Lascelles Wraxall, who translated most of Aimard's stories. Undated (about 1920) but the French version originally published in 1864. Gustave Aimard (1818-1883) was in his heyday the favourite Indian romancer of the French schoolboy. His stories of wild life in the backwoods were based on the real experience of their author, who took up a seafaring life from an early age and travelled to and across the Americas, where he met and lived among many native peoples. Includes a glossary of native words used by Aimard.

No dustjacket. Hard dark red cover with gilt decoration and title to spine. Board covers very good, a little grubby. Spine rubbed at top and bottom but good. Foxing on inside covers. Inside pages very good and unmarked.
