Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1879 Excerpt: ...heard the rustling of Athel's chain-mail and the click of the plated suit on the opposite corner.

And a minute later the headless form repassed. Then the tapestry rustled its heavy folds, and he seemed to hear the mass of plated armour strike its gauntlet against the broad buckler, with a sound accompanying, like a smothered groan.
