The Last Barricade
Mervyn Jones' third novel in a super Pat Marriott wrapper
First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. 19.5 × 13cm, 251pp.
The author's third novel. The story of an exiled ex-President, Acarin, directing a struggle against the dictatorship that overthrew him from a house in London.
A good copy. The dustwrapper is complete but browned to the edges, the book is foxed to the endpapers and page edges but a sound copy. A previous owner has put several Xs in pencil to the margins and these could easily be erased. The book is, on the whole, in good solid shape.
