£100.00

Product description

These three hardback volumes, published by Longmans, Green & Co., are in very good condition. The covers are bright and clean and only lightly worn. There is virtually no foxing or yellowing to pages.
The three volumes in this trilogy are:

1899 Alfgar the Dane, or The Second Chronicle of Ascendune. A Tale of the Days of Edmund Ironside
