McDougall. Black cloth covers with red library tape spine, covers are bit tired, old library sticker marks, edges bit rubbed. Interiors have had library pockets rather roughly taken out leading to scarring and lacks on the end papers, interior paper bit toned but otherwise clean and unmarked. Back hinge strengthened with red library tape. From the publisher: "...incomparably Ayscough's best work,...Though cast into the outward fashion of an idealist romance, it is in reality an accurate appreciation of the hermit -- Pope St. Celestine V. His poignant story is told, for the first time, six hundred years after his death, with tender revernce, an almost passionate loyalty, and an absolute realisation of the saint, his time, and his country..." ; Ex-Library; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 324 pages; Signed by Author
