The Age of Drake

By: Williamson, James.A.

Price: £15.00

Publisher: UK, Adam & Charles Black: 1952

Edition: 3rd Edition

Sellers ID: 03615

Condition: Very Good


This book is a cleverly planned and well-balanced book, since it combines a fairly detailed history of slave-dealing, piratical raids, colonisation, and the discovery of new countries with that of the European political background and popular state of mind in England which called out and applauded these events. The hardboards have bumps to the corners and plain brown D/w has a tear and creasing at the top of the spine , and the corners are worn. It is still a good, tight reading copy. View more info
