The Tale of a Manor is an 1899 novel by the Swedish writer Selma Lagerlöf. It tells the story of a young woman who tries to rescue the man she loves from madness, caused by shame and sorrow.
Whilst the book is in good solid shape, the pages are heavily tanned throughout but the book remains perfectly readable.
