Surtees, Robert X.
With illustrations by John Leech. Only one book by Surtees [1803-1864] was publ under his own name in his lifetime - a horse buyer's guide - yet he was an accomplished author, as this posthumously published humorous novel shows. His dry wit and ironic approach to life was perhaps unsuitable for a man who inherited the family estate and was the JP for County Durham. New but shop-worn. 537 pgs, Paper. Published by Nonsuch, Gloucester. Orig publ 1858. 2005. NEW. $6.00
