9780002214247: Sharpe's Enemy

The armies had retired to winter quarters - but it was not a peaceful time for Richard Sharpe and Sergeant Patrick Harper. For a French renegade and his drunken rabble of deserters had taken over the little town of Adrados. And they had taken hostages too.

Review:

‘Sharpe and his creator are national treasures.' Sunday Telegraph

'Bernard Cornwell is a literary miracle. Year after year, hail, rain, snow, war and political upheavals fail to prevent him from producing the most entertaining and readable historical novels of his generation.' Daily Mail

'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched.' Observer
‘The best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.’ George R.R. Martin

About the Author:

Bernard Cornwell worked for BBC TV for seven years, mostly as producer on the Nationwide programme, before taking charge of the Current Affairs department in Northern Ireland. In 1978 he became editor of Thames Television’s Thames at Six. Married to an American, he now lives in the United States.

Book Description Collins, London, United Kingdom, 1984. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. True first British printing with original unclipped jacket (£8.50). Jacket has faults - namely edge/shelf wear, browning, a few small marks, fading to spine, a little rubbing/creasing to edges and a couple of small chips (loss) to back upper and lower corners. Boards are very good with a little pushing/rubbing to head/tail of spine, the occasional very small mark (not major) and a little creasing to spine. Little spine lean. The binding is tight. Pages are (quite badly) tanned due to quality of paper used. Top of pages little dusty with a few small marks, mild foxing. End-papers are tanned with the odd very small mark/spot of foxing. Odd small mark to page edges/bottoms and to bottom corner. Old booksellers very small stamp inside back board (barely noticeable). Odd small marks to a few pages (nothing much). No other faults. A solid copy (albeit with faults as detailed). All books described honestly and accurately. Paypal accepted. Bookseller Inventory # 003009
