Signed directly to the half-title page by Alexander Cordell.
The third and final volume of Cordell's "Mortymer Trilogy". This book tells of the Evan family buying a canal barge on the Neath valley canal. There they meet Mari Mortymer and her adopted daughter Rhiannon. It tells of the coal industry in Resolven as well as the Brunel designed Canal system of the valley. It describes the landscape of the area (still viewable today over 150 years later) as well as the hardship suffered by the family, and growth of disease and population topography in the industrial revolution.
The book is in good plus condition, with a little tanning and foxing to the pages' top edge. The dustwrapper is rubbed all over and a little grubby but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
Please note: Due to the recent price rise for final mile delivery from USPS, our postage rates to the US have had to rise. We apologise for this but have no choice.
