Description

An attractive copy of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Kidnapped. Undated but research shows it to have been published in the 1970s by The Peebles Classic Library. In good vintage condition.

Kidnapped is a historical fiction adventure novel first published in the magazine Young Folks from May to July 1886. The novel has attracted the praise and admiration of writers as diverse as Henry James, Jorge Luis Borges, and Hilary Mantel. Kidnapped is set around real 18th-century Scottish events, notably the "Appin murder", which occurred in the aftermath of the Jacobite rising of 1745. Many of the characters are real people, including one of the principals, Alan Breck Stewart. The political situation of the time is portrayed from multiple viewpoints, and the Scottish Highlanders are treated sympathetically

The pages are clean and tightly bound with no writing, marks or signs of previous ownership. With a few folded corners at the bottom. There are some tanning and foxing marks along the top closed edge, otherwise good. Opens onto mustard yellow endpapers. This is an unillustrated edition.

The dark blue boards have fared well for a vintage edition with really the only sign of wear being some very mild bumping to the corners. The gilt on the front board is sparkly bright and this is an attractive edition.

The gilt on the spine has rubbed a bit in comparison to the front (see photos), but is still legible. There is a bit of rounding to the cloth at the head of the spine.

A clean and tight edition, your copy of Kidnapped will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon.

H 19 cm X W 12 cm, 221 pages, 0.25 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).
