The Ambermere Treasure (with unusual family Saville inscription)


1st edition of this Jillies title. Book has a little discolouration/fading to boards, not actually as pronounced as the photographs make it look. Wonderful family inscription on rear of fep - Uncle Len referring to Malcolm Saville who was Leonard Malcolm Saville giving the book to his niece personally, as well as his author’s signature on half title page. As can be seen the (scarce) dustwrapper has loss to top edge around top of spine, as well as creasing and wear. Not price clipped.
