The Wolf King

£90.00

Product description

Pale yellow cloth covered boards, no jacket. Top corners bumped and worn through to the board, bottom corners slightly worn.

Title on front is in a black box along with a silhouette of a wolf in howling poise near a broken tree and full moon; there is a scuff mark across the title and a stain above the tree. The authors name is also on the front in extremely light lettering, the contrast between the pale board and white lettering making it very difficult to see.

The spine has the title in a black box with a silhouette of a wolf by a cliff top. The author's and publisher's names, in white text are difficult to see. There are some small tears to both edges of the spine

The back board is undecorated but has a large brown stain at the top corner near the spine.

The hinges and binding are in good order.

There are no inscriptions.

Some foxing to the prelims and last few pages but the majority of the text in unaffected.

Illustrations by Ernest Aris. The frontispiece is entitled "The Black King Sat Near The Main Trail And Watched"
