Robert Louis Stevenson The Master of Ballantrae

£50.00

Product description

Set in Scotland during the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, in the exotic French Indies, and in the North American wilderness, the story has as its hero one of the most compelling yet horrifying studies of evil in nineteenth-century fiction—James Durie, Master of Ballantrae. The Master is about his infective influence—on his younger, less attractive brother Henry; on Henry's wife Alison; and on those narrators whom Stevenson so skilfully employs to present their experiences of this charming, ruthless, and evil man.

On the front and back cover there is some discolouration of the jacket as well as some wear on the top hand corners of the book. Other than this the covers are in good condition. Within the book the pages are clean and clear with few signs of foxing, there are no missing pages or annotations.

Printed in 1897.
