Stevenson, R. L. - The Black Arrow. Mellifont Press, not dated, 1946s? Condensed text. ... medieval England in the throes of the Wars of the Roses. In swift-moving, lively prose we read how Dick Shelton, nephew of the wicked Sir Daniel Brackley, eludes his evil relative in a series of hairbredth escapes in the greenwood with 'Jack Matcham', his unrecognised affianced, Joanna Sedley, who acompanies him in man's disguise. But Nemesis is the real hero of the book, pursuing its villains with the bow of the outlaw, John Amendall. Twang goes John's bow-string and his black arrows of vengeance find their mark time and time again. 7" x 4¼", 254pp inc. endpapers, light-brown paper, front-board and spine blocked in dark-brown, hardback. Illustrated endpapers.
Page-edge browning; very good minus (no inscriptions, no bumps, not ex-library), clean copy complete with good only (2¼" tear along front-edge of front-panel from foot and 'scrunging' to the adjacent section; slight edge-wear, slightly 'dusty') wrapper; not price-cut.
