The King's General.

London: Victor Gollancz, 1946. [Historical Fiction] FIRST EDITION, SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.298 [1], Acknowledgements; [1], blank. Publisher's green cloth with gilt titles to spine. With the distinctive yellow Gollancz dust-jacket, priced at 9/6. With author's inscription to title: 'For Frieda my / friend and neighbour / Daphne Du Maurier //.' Bookstore stamp to flap. A fine copy of the book in a near fine jacket, slightly worn to crown and gently toned to the spine. Inspired by a grisly discovery in the nineteenth century, 'The King's General' was the first of du Maurier's novels to be written at Menabilly, the model for Manderley in 'Rebecca'. Set in the seventeenth century, it tells the story of a country and a family riven by war, and features one of fiction's most original heroines in Honor Harris. Item #67018
