Original green cloth, blocked in gilt. Fold out map of the "provinces of Low Germanie" (ie Belgium and Holland) as frontispiece. Spine bumped, light scuffing, undated signature on front free endpaper, tear to edge of map, otherwise very good. A historical novel set in the Low Countries in the period 1568 - 70: the time of the Inquisition and revolt against Spanish rule. Later reprint editions of the novel were helpfully retitled The Master-Beggars of Belgium.
