Flashman by George Macdonald Fraser 1st / 1st 1969

£240.00Price

First edition and first print published by Herbert Jenkins in 1969. This is a fine copy. The immaculate wrapper has been price clipped and has a publishers repriced sticker on the flap. There miniscule amounts of wear. There is no fading to the spine at all and the stunning wrapper retains all of its colour. The book also is very presentable with no inscriptions or foxing / browning. A collectible fine copy.

 

Presented within the frame of the discovery of the supposedly historical Flashman Papers, this book chronicles the subsequent career of the bully Flashman from Tom Brown's School Days. The book begins with a fictional note explaining that the Flashman Papers were discovered in 1965 during a sale of household furniture in Ashby, Leicestershire. The papers are attributed to Harry Paget Flashman, the bully featured in Thomas Hughes' novel, who becomes a well-known Victorian military hero (in Fraser's fictional England). The first in the series and scarce with these attributes.
