Rider Haggard's gothic-fantasy published as a sequel to She. Chronologically, it is the final novel of the Ayesha and Allan Quatermain series.

A good copy in an attractive wrapper. There is some light edgewear to the wrapper, and a little tanning and spotting to the page edges but otherwise a very decent readable copy.
