Costain Son of a Hundred Kings P1299 Hardcover without dust jacket, 465 pages Doubleday & Company 1950 Condition: Fair With mild dirt smudges on hardbound book covers and spine With slight tanned inner covers. Crisp and clean pages. Summary plot: Written in 1950, Costain wrote another masterpiece quite different from his historical novels but still with quite captivating, touching and unforgettable characters. The title of this book is based on Kipling's poem "The Absent-Minded Beggar" Synopsis A RICH AND COLORFUL NOVEL SET IN A SMALL TOWN IN THE 1890’s. It was cold the day the boat docked in Halifax and the boy had no overcoat or mittens. He was alone and shivering. A square oilcloth had been sewed to the back of his coat. On it, in crude red letters, had been printed: “This is LUDAR PRENTICE. “He has no money. He is going to his father “Vivien Prentice at Balfour, Ontario, Canada. “BE KIND TO HIM.” So began the adventures of an English boy who grew to manhood surrounded by the vice and virtue, greed and generosity, love and hate of a small Canadian town at the turn of the nineteenth century. “A story of romance and adventure that will keep you reading late into the night.”—Mr. Norman E. Sheppard, Moorestown, New Jersey “Son of a Hundred Kings is one of the cleanest, most heart-warming books I’ve read in a long time. All of the characters seem human and real.”—Miss Mar Templeton, Langdale, Alabama “A well-written book with an interesting plot. It had enough suspense and tension so that I didn’t want to stop reading it.”—Mr. Warren, G. Grebner, Huron, South Dakota ■Thomas B. Costain The Tontine Volume II. P1299 Hardcover without dust jacket, 815 pages Doubleday & Company 1955 Condition: Fair Light scuffs on hardbound book covers' edges & corners. With book creasing near along the spine of the book Crisp & clean pages. Description: The story of a tontine ( a strange and enticing form of gamble, part lottery, part insurance) begins with the day when the battle of Waterloo was fought and ends when the nineteenth century was drawing to a close. It is above everything else, therefore, a story of great variety: for although it marches briskly ahead with the interweaving narrative of the lives of its main characters, it takes time also to linger in the back wash of change, in the dingy squares, the inns, the coaching yards and railway stations, in the greenrooms and courts and jails of a colorful century." It carries along the suspense of the tontine as the years go by until finally there are but three survivors in this fascinating human lottery. Then there are two. And at last- one. ■UFOs and Extra-Terrestials in History Volume 3. Yves Naud Hardcover, 252 pages Ferni Publishers 1978 Slightly used book in good condition.
