Published in 1923, reprint edition, by Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press as part of their 'World Classics' collection. Olive green boards with worn gilt design and lettering on the spine, includes a red cotton bookmark.
Angered by the values of his materialistic society, Hawk-eye lives apart from the other white men, sharing the solitude and sublimity of the wilderness with his Mohican Indian friend, Chingachgook. As the savageries of war test these exiled men, they agree to guide two sisters in search of their father through hostile Indian country - even if it means risking everything. An enduring American classic, The Last of the Mohicans is a fast-paced portrait of fierce individualism and courage, set against massacres, raids, battles and a doomed love affair. It is also the unforgettable story of the friendship between two men.
In fair to good condition. Both boards are bumped, and have some scratches and in areas the boards have become a bit dented. The spine once had gilt lettering and embellishment but this has faded leaving a faint shadow of the title and decoration, it also shows signs of light shelf-wear, particularly to the head and base. The end-papers are yellowed and marked, some foxing of the edges of the pages. The binding is OK, but the book lies flat when open. The pages are clear and in good condition.
