Fair Margaret - First Edition

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

1907. A fair copy in fair condition. Complete of 15 plates. The first plate is loose but still present. Foxed on the first and last pages. Inscription in black ink on the first page dated 1913. Blue cloth with gilt lettering in box on spine and front cover. Head spine chipped.

In the turbulent reign of King Henry VII, Peter Brome finds himself with a soldier's blood on his hands - blood the Spanish ambassador's men demand be repaid.

Poor and fatherless, Peter delivered the killing blow in self-defense - and because of his helpless love for Margaret - dark-eyed daughter of John Castell, the kindly and wealthy merchant who has overseen his upbringing.

Now another pursues fair Margaret - the powerful Marquis d'Aguilar of Spain, traveling in England upon a secret mission for the Inquisition. More than love hangs in the balance!
