The Four Adventures of Richard Hannay

£19.99

Product description

This volume contains all four of John Buchan's Richard Hannay novels ('The Thirty-Nine Steps', 'Greenmantle', 'Mr Standfast', and 'The Three Hostages'), and was given to a (presumably) delighted Buchan fan by a friend in 1935. While the first two titles are extremely well-known, the others are less so, and perhaps less commonly available.

John Buchan, 1st Baron Tweedsmuir GCMG GCVO CH PC (1875–1940) was a Scottish novelist, historian and Unionist politician who served as Governor General of Canada from 1935 until his untimely death following a fall, in 1940. His 100 works include nearly thirty novels, seven collections of short stories, and biographies of Sir Walter Scott, Caesar Augustus, and Oliver Cromwell.

Our book is in good condition, bound in buff-coloured cloth (somewhat grubby and darkened around the edges and particularly on the spine), with title etc in red and black lettering on spine and front cover, with red & black lines at top & bottom of these. Inside, the binding is firm with no loose pages; there is some very minimal foxing on the endpapers and long edge of the text block, but none inside the body of the book, and all pages are clean and bright. A 'gift' bookplate is pasted inside the front cover.
