First thus, hardback bound in the original brown cloth with gilt titling to spine and printed titling to upper board. 20 × 12.5cm, 188pp + ads.
A series of historical short stories from perhaps the best known member of the silver fork writers (authors of the Regency era who depicted the gentility and etiquette of high society). The stories are: The "Lettre de Cachet", The Story of Two Rings, In the Year 1789, Shadows and Clouds, Barbara Dalton, A Short Story, Another Fancy, A Brave Little Wife, A Silent Bargain, Dolores, Karl's Task, and Asparagus.
Very good condition, there is some light rubbing to the edges and bumping to spine ends. There is a little bit of loosening to the binding at the beginning of the book but otherwise in strong readable condition.
