Sabatini, Rafael THE STROLLING SAINT
Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1924. Revised edition. First issued in 1913, a revised edition was also released in the U.K. by Stanley Paul in 1924. Hardcover. Pale age-darkening to endsheets, light uniform fading to black cloth, else nearly fine; in a nicked, chipped, edge-torn dust jacket that shows a substantial split at the front flap fold. Yet the jacket art is whole and uncompromised.
Panoramic adventure set at the height of the Renaissance in the Italy of the Borgias, of a young man destined by his mother to be a priest, who abandons his calling for the profession of arms. Jacket art by H.M. Brock.
