William Black

$ 2.99

The ‘Scottish Anthony Trollope’, William Black was a successful novelist of the latter half of the nineteenth century. He developed his own unique brand of novel, blending scenes of actual experience in travel and sport with fictitious adventures, resulting in part travel book, part novel. Few men of letters were more widely known and esteemed in literary circles at the time of his death. His works are noted for their vivid and atmospheric descriptions and their exquisite portrayal of character. This eBook presents Black’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, many rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
