Larry Vincent

£3.99

Product description

When Clyde Batchelor finally married the lovely and aristocratic Lucy Page, it was after overcoming many obstacles and it brought about a great change in him: he turned from his lawless gambling days and, with his wife, built up a fleet of steamboats unmatched all along the Mississippi River.

Then, tragically, and almost overnight, Clyde lost everything he had - his fortune, company, prestige and the two women for whom he had won the worlds as he knew it; Lucy and his beloved daughter Cary. All that was left him was the crumbling remains of his business and Larry Vincent, his grandson. But although Larry was a mere babe in arms, the child was to give Clyde Batchelor someone to live and work for; he was to grow up to be Clyde's constant companion - and, like his grandfather before him, Larry was to meet and fall violently in love with a beautiful, gentle but inaccessible lady...

No dust jacket. The green boards spine are showing signs of age (fading) otherwise in quite good condition. The (cut) binding is still tight and the text is clear & legible. All pages are yellowing with age however, for some reason, pages 193-289 are brown with age.
