Pentowan a Cornish Tale

£24.99

Product description

This is a copy of the 1859 1st edition. It has red hardback covers with gilt lettering. The front and back covers are in decent condition but with signs of wear at the corners. The spine is missing sections at the top and bottom but still has the title and author in gilt lettering. Gilt page edges are still bright, the stitching is still good and the pages are intact, though with some yellowing and signs of use. There is an inscription, handwritten in copperplate, on the yellow flyleaf and dated 1859. There is a library stamp on one of the blank frontispiece pages.
William Forfar lived in Helston and this story of Cornish people uses local dialect and is based on local people.
