The White Company - Doyle, Arthur Conan - 1891. 
London: Smith, Elder & Co. 1891 - First edition of the author's medieval romance novel. One of 750 copies. Three volumes. Bound in the original publisher's cloth. Some light wear to the spine ends, light rubbing and vertical creasing to spine, hinges cracked or just starting in volume I, a small former owner signature to the front endpaper of each volume, overall a tight and very good set. The White Company is a historical fiction novel set against the backdrop of the Hundred Years' War. The story was originally published serially in William Makepeace Thackeray's literary journal Cornhill Magazine. The novel tells of young Saxon squire Alleyn Edricson's coming of age in the Middle Ages and mixes history, romance, and chivalry in an exciting and popular text. While it is the Sherlock Holmes series he is best remembered for, Doyle enjoyed writing The White Company the best out of all of his novels and considered it one of his best works. Interestingly, the main character Amory Blaine reads The White Company in F. Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
