"The Black Arrow" by Robert Louis Stevenson
This beautifully illustrated hardback book, "The Black Arrow" by Robert Louis Stevenson is copyrighted in 1916. I believe this edition was a print from 1942. The novel was originally written in 1888 and is both an historical adventure novel, as well as, a romance novel. It tells the story of Richard Shelton during The Wars of the Roses.
For a book that is over 75 years old, it has issues. The spine is torn and loose inside the front. There are spots and wear on the illustrated cover, but still quite pretty. It is a former high school library book with a few marks within the pages of the book from the library. There are also a couple of pages that contain pen or pencil scribbling. The price reflects the condition. It is still a great book.
