A Tale of Two Sieges of Paris. London: F. V. White & Co., 1895. 16 pp undated ads (paginated as the end of the book). Original rose-mottled cloth.
First Edition. This is one of Henty's historical tales for adults, rather than for boys, which is why it is not published by his usual publisher Blackie.
This is a very good-plus copy: the spine is a little faded and the gilt lettering does not stand out well against such light-colored cloth, and there is a small mark near the bottom of the front cover; that said, there is very little actual wear, and the brittle original patterned endpapers have only minor cracking. These Henty tales for adults are much scarcer than his tales for boys. Newbolt 65.1. Item #12648
