Product description

Title: A Flight of Birds
Author: Cecil Roberts
Publisher: Hodder & Staunton

Hardback with glossy full-colour illustrated dust jacket. Dark blue textured paper binding. Gilt lettering on spine. Smooth matte inside pages.
Item in good condition save for some minor shelf wear. Dust jacket in good to fair condition but with some bending, discolouration along the top edge. Binding in good condition but with some small white specks along the spine and on the front, and some fading along the top edge. Inside pages clean, intact and in excellent condition.

Signed First Edition copy of Cecil Roberts' novel.

From the dust jacket:

'The birds that give title to Cecil Roberts' new novel are a green buderigar, a swallow, a crimson parrot, a bluebird, a pelican, and a robin. These six all play an influential role in the lives of the various persons who possess them.

The settings and themes of these six dramas are as varied and picturesque as in any of his former novels. England, Italy, France, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico are all evoked with the fidelity and acuteness of vision which characterise the work of an author who knows intimately the countries in which he moves with such experienced affection. To this background he brings all the compassion and delicacy that mark his writings, which through the years have won him such a large and faithful public."
