Description: D/J and Book are in great shape An excellent copy. This splendid Novel is loaded with a sence of "fin-de-siecle" unease. Among the host of charecters are Wills' Oxford friends and colleagues including John Ruskin, Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), Who shares his passion for photography and for small girls, and Oscar wilde, Will's closest friend. In Rhodes' gloomy, male-dominated estate, suffused with errotic undercurrents, Wills is drawn into intrigue - romantic, political and ornithological - with leander Starr Jameson, leader of the failed raid into Boar territory, Alfred Milner, the Kipling family and the great feminest writter, Olive Schreiner. History is ingeniously rewritten in this witty and engaging novel. You will receive the book seen in the image. Thankyou. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall ISBN 0747542937
