7 Ainsworth, W. [William] Harrison The Constable of the Tower (1861)
London George Routledge & Sons 1900 Hardcover Good Book Sir John Gilbert 
Undated, unillustrated reprint, c1900. Original crimson cloth, with blindstamped pattern on front board and illustration of Windsor Castle in gilt. A little scuffed, inner joint papers lightly cracking (but joints tight), good. Scarce. Ainsworth had a habit of giving different novels similar titles. Thus The Constable of the Tower is quite different from The Constable de Bourbon and also different (although it shares a setting) from either the oft-reprinted The Tower of London or the very rare Tower Hill.

Third Edition. Original blindstamped purple cloth; yellow endpapers. Corners rubbed, small chip to cloth at foot of spine, light foxing, undated signatures on prelims, good. Ainsworth produced a number of novels with confusingly similar titles: this novel is NOT The Tower of London, NOR Tower Hill, but it is, like the other two, set in the reign of Henry VIII.
