Pepper, Bob-Wrap-around Cover Art. Very Good. 274 Pages. A May 1971 Edition that is a part of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series with the unicorn head on the front cover. While this book, now more than 40 years old, shows no evidence of age-tanning from improper storage, it is evident that the publisher used a low grade of pulp paper. Rodriguez Trinidad Fernandez Concepcion Henrique Maria-Lord of Arguento and Duke of Shadow Valley sets forth on his thoughtful, elegant adventures, sword in one hand for he has been instructed to seek out a war, and mandolin in the other for any possible ladies who might like to be serenaded en route. His innocent search for war and ladies is conducted in the courtly, leisurely fashion only to be expected from the scion of an ancient house in the Golden Age of Spain. And as in the case of a slightly more famous compatriot, he quickly acquires a Sancho Panza to assist him in his toilette and travels. But in that happy while, wars were hard to come by. So it is a long time, and many mystical and even dangerous adventures later, before Rodriguez feels he has fulfilled his father's dying request and can return, conscience-free, to complete his destiny and reign as Duke of Shadow Valley.
