The Romance of a Medici Warrior

Hardcover, London: Stanley Paul & Company, 1910. Very Good. No date on title or copyright page, but there is a 6 page publisher's catalog for Autumn,1910 bound in after the index, so print date must be prior to Autumn of 1910. Since the first printing of this title was in 1910, this is probably a first printing and no worse than a very early printing. No previous owner marks.
