New York: Farrar, Straus and Young, 1951. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo. Very Good / Very Good. Item #002913
Second printing. 377 p.p. Blue cloth boards with brown lettering to spine. Bumping and rubbing to spine ends and corners, a few spots and stains to boards, a few scuffs to top edge of text block. Dust jacket has large chip to front cover at foot, a few small chips to spine ends, wear to corners and spine ends, light soiling to rear cover and small perforation to rear joint. The Viking is fast-paced and filled with color and the constant clash of arms. There is hunting, fishing, tense rivalries and battle after ringing battle, with the Norse gods fiercely in the minds of the Vikings, and the God of the Christians set against them. Conflict and love are here also always superbly told with vigor and suspense.
