Fletcher, J. S. - Mistress Spitfire. Collins. 1930, reissued edition. Here is an historical novel that savours not of history, but rather of romance and adventure. It is written in a delightful old-world style, so cleverly assimilated by the author that you will read it with more ease and pleasure than many a novel that is essentially twentieth century. In Richard Coope, Gent., and his sharp-tongued cousin, Alison French, we have as amusing a Benedick and Beatrice as we could wish to meet in the pages of fiction. Master Richard is just that dashing, chivalrous adventurer we associate with the days of King Charles, and Mistress Alison is most attractively provocative. We follow the somewhat erratic course of their love with a keen enjoyment of their every exploit in the time of the Cavaliers and Roundheads. (Verso of Half-Title). 7½" x 5", 252pp, red-brown cloth, hardback. Remnants of old label along top of front board, remnants of old label at top of front paste-down, name and address writtin at top of front-free endpaper, covers marked and unevenly 'dusty', good reading copy only, reasonably solid, no wrapper.
