Flashman at the Charge
Barrie & Jenkins 1973. A Very Good Copy of this Book in Publisher's red cloth with silver lettered title to spine in a Very Good Dust-Jacket,no chips or tears to the outer edges of the wrapper.There is some rubbing to extremities and a little sunning to spine.There is also some spotting to the fore-edge of the book.This copy has NO previous ownership markings present but does come with a very attractive typed written letter by the Author from his Isle of Man home and SIGNED by him.The letter is housed in it's original envelope stamped Isle of Man (where Fraser then resided) and addressed to a lasy in South Africa.The 2 sided letter dated 29.1.74 refers to the Lady original letter and he is intrigued by a name of Flashman that appeared in John Dobie's South African Journal,the letter goes onto say he could have been a hitherto unmentioned younger brother of Flashman.Fraser goes onto say and I quote '' I'm most interested actually to find a genuine Flashman in Africa,because it isn't a coimmon name.There was a genuine Flashman in Africa who founded the Flashman Hotels in India,another (fat Stan Flashman) is at present I believe the leading ticket scapler in London,and there is a family of Flashmans now living in the West Country.But it's always nice to hear of a new member of the clan.... especially one who plays cards and does some quick horse-trading 'on spec' I'm very glad you wrote to tell me about him.Until Flashy does get to South Africa.... which i intend hime to do so all my best wishes Yours Sincerely George Fraser '' Definately an interesting letter and a real collector's item.8vo 286pp First Edition 1st Impression
