Royal Flash.

Royal Flash.

London: Barrie and Jenkins, 1970. [Historical Humour] FIRST EDITION, first impression. Octavo (22 x 14cm), pp.261 [3]. Maps to endpapers. Publisher's red paper-covered boards with silver titles to spine. With the dust-jacket illustrated by A.E. Barbosa, priced at £1.50. A clean copy of the book in a very good jacket with the usual laminate shrink issues, a few short tears and some slight sunning to the spine. Very good. The second, most elusive Flashman novel, and the only one to be set in a fictional location, Royal Flash mixes Flashman with the intrigue and court politics surrounding the Schleswig-Holstein question. From London gaming-halls and English hunting-fields to European dungeons and throne-rooms, Flashman is involved in a desperate succession of escapes, disguises, amours, and, when he can not avoid them, hand-to-hand combats, while the destiny of a continent rests on his broad and failing shoulders.
