The Ward of King Canute - A Romance of the Danish Conquest

£19.99

Product description

Published in 1904 by Ward Lock & Co.

Colour plate illustrations by Troy & Margaret West Kinney. Decorative illustrated first letter of each chapter. Illustrated and decorated boards.

Liljencrantz writes in the Foreword: There is an old myth of a hero who renewed his strength each time he touched the earth, and finally was overcome by being raised in the air and crushed. Whether or not the Angles risked a like fate as they raised themselves away from the primitive virtues that had been their life and strength, no one can tell; but it has been well said that when Northern blood mingled with English blood at the time of the Danish Conquest, the Anglo-Saxon race touched the earth again.

Red Boards are somewhat worn and rubbed. End papers are split although binding is still intact. Stamps from a reading room and club on front end paper. Lightly foxed.
