Under the Chinese Dragon

£7.99

Product description

A "novel for boys" written in the days when much of the world was still under British influence and patriotic tales of derring-do were popular. Lt. Col. F. S. Brereton had served with distinction in the British Army and produced over 40 volumes.
Bound in golden yellow with black lettering to spine and front, it bears a striking dragon design in blue and black,on the spine depicting an armed Chinese man. Although the binding is scuffed and age soiled, with toned text block edges, the occasional foxing spot to page edges and brown staining on pages 121 to 130, all text is clear and legible. The book originally had 6 illustrations comprising monochrome plates, but there are only 5 as the frontispiece is missing. The reduced price takes account of this.
