Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Truro This is John Buchan's last novel featuring Richard Hannay (of The 39 Steps). The action occurs when Hannay, now in his fifties, is called by an old oath to protect the son of a man he once knew, who is also heir to the secret of a great treasure. He obtains help from Sandy Arbuthnot, now Lord Clanroyden, and Lombard. The action takes place in England, Scotland and on the Island of Sheep. This is located in what Buchan describes as 'the Norlands': clearly the Faroe Islands. There are several stereotypical villains, in particular D'Ingraville from The Courts of the Morning, and the book also focuses on Hannay's son, Peter John, now a bright but solemn teenager. This first edition hardback is worn along the spine, particularly the edges and also the edges of the boards. These are also slightly discoloured. The pages are yellowed and spotted with age. There is some staining to the page edges. The binding is beginning to loosen. See Oxfam website for delivery information
