Clean beige book has spine ends and corners bumped. Pages edges, pastedowns and endpapers lightly brown; interior pages clean, no binding problems. Dust wrapper, with Barbosa illustration, lightly edgeworn and age yellowed, with a slightly soiled white rear panel. A nice copy. ; This witty novel combines Regency romance with a mystery. 'Captain Staple is finding post-Waterloo England sadly flat. But then he falls into cahoots (so to speak) with engaging Jeremy Chirk (highwayman), taciturn Gabriel Stogumber (Bow Street runner), and attractive Nell Stornaway (Squire's daughter) who exerts a compelling fascination even more exciting than Waterloo.'
