Description:Very near fine in dark blue cloth covered boards with gilt text...Very near fine in dark blue cloth covered boards with gilt text on the spine and bright gilt decoration on the front board with map end sheets. A small octavo measuring 7 1/2" by 5". In a good+ price clipped dust jacket with a large 2" deep by 1" wide chip from the lower edge of the spine area the unsightliness of which has been mitigated by the placement of a facsimile copy of that portion of the jacket placed behind the original jacket. Other than this unfortunate large chip the jacket is really in fairly nice condition with minimal wear or tanning. An exceptionally scarce title to come by in first edition as only 5, 000 copies were produced in the first printing. 870 pages of text. This is the sequel to Roberts' Arundel which picks up after Arnold's attack on Quebec and follows the sequence of events as the ragged army retreats down the St. Lawrence River to Lake Champlain. Roberts' was one of the first novelists to give credible exposure to the Battle of Valcor Island which, although a loss for the Americans, slowed the British advance down Lake Champlain to connect with the Hudson enough so that they had to return to Canada for the winter of 1776-7. This ultimately lead to the victory at Saratoga the following year. A handsome, collectible copy of one of Roberts' most significant historical fiction novels in its scarce original dust jacket by N. C. Wyeth.
