The Axe of Bronze

£8.99

Product description

This is the story of two boys, Birno and Amer, who lived 4000 years ago at the time of the transition from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. These boys, who are round-headed and black-haired, make friends with some blonde and narrow-headed boys from the next village. The 'Narrowheads' are far more advanced than their neighbours and have discovered how bronze tools can change their primitive methods of work... This remarkable tale is based on all the known facts and theories about this remote time.

Illustrations by M.A. Charlton.

A good quality copy, tightly bound in original light blue cloth-covered boards, with gilding to the cover and spine. Slight foxing on page edges, but perfectly legible. In an illustrated dust cover, which is slightly age-darkened and chipped, and has not been price-clipped.
