Prester John by John Buchan 1st / 1st 1910


First UK edition and first print published by Nelson in 1910. This is a very good copy. The boards and very clean and bright not usually found with this title. There is some rubbing to the top and bottom of the spine and to the corners. There is a square mark on the inside board where a previous owners bookplate has been removed. A couple of marks on the front free end papers. No previous owners ink and pages generally free from marks or foxing. Overall a very good copy. 


Prester John is a 1910 adventure novel. It tells the story of a young Scotsman named David Crawfurd and his adventures in South Africa, where a Zulu uprising is tied to the medieval legend of Prester John.
