Man-Shy

by Frank Dalby Davison

Angus & Robertson, 1935 [Fourth Edition], hardcover, dust-jacket

Very Good Condition, some edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing to edges and corners, previous owners inscription to front end-paper, blue tick marks on content page, remainder line at bottom fore-edge, foxing to front and back end-papers, dust-jacket shows some edge and shelf wear with some tears, chips, creasing and wear with small parts missing (see photographs)

"In this beautiful legend Mr Davison's imagination has touched the historical facts with a bloom and steeped them in an atmosphere that reveals the truth far more clearly than the historian's uninspired chronicle.  It embraces the part taken by the Anzac Mounted Division in the last phases of the attack on and capture of Beersheba.  The horses' part in the campaign is nowhere so understandingly, so sympathetically, or so finely told.  Altogether worthy of the author of Man-Shy".
