About the book

The House Of The Paladin is the tale of a lovely medieval castle and its chatelaine, the beautiful little Duchess Anastasia of Ornawitza, the boy king Alexander, and the the young English boy, Hugh Vallence, descendent of the House of Valens whose motto so aptly was "Quit you like men". The account of the trials of Anastasia, her courage and resourcefulness in the face of the devlish schemes of her wicked uncle the marquis Miglione and the part played by the romantic figure Dick Fauconbois, "The Stormy Petrel," are full of excitement and thrills and the suspense is sustained until the very end.

  • Book Condition & Notes

    This copy has a lean and an uneven page block. The page block is discoloured, there is a price clip on the dust jacket and a 'this belongs to' bookplate has been stuck in the front and written on. It looks as though the previous owner has applied tape to the front and back flap of the dust jacket in six separate places. The dust jacket is faded and discoloured with shelf wear.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
