Sharpe's Sword by Bernard Cornwell 1st / 1st 1983
FIRST UK EDITION published by Collins in 1983. The complete wrapper has a mark to the lower flap. There is a tiny tear and it has been repaired to the reverse. The wrapper is not price clipped. The book is in excellent condition with no previous owners ink or foxing. Overall it is a very near fine copy.
The fourth Sharpe to be written by Cornwell, although it is the fourteenth chronologically. Set in 1812 it involved Sharpe and Sgt harper tracking down Col LeRoux. A favourite story amongst Sharpe fans and also the rarest first edition in the series. The actual print run is debatable, it is said to be only 500. But in any case it is hard to find in this very near fine condition.
