1 Pears, Iain An Instance of the Fingerpost
New York Riverhead Books 1998 1573220825 / 9781573220828 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. First US edition first printing. 694 pages. England in th 1660's, Charles II has been restored to the throne following years of civil war and Oliver Cromwell's short-lived republic. Oxford is the intellectual seat of the country, a place of great scientific, religious, and political ferment. A fellow of New College is found dead in suspicious circumstances and a young woman is accused of his murder. We hear the story of the death from four witnesses: an Italian physician intent on claiming credit for the invention of blood transfusion; the son of an alleged Royalist traitor; a master cryptographer who has worked for both Cromwell and the King; a renowned Oxford antiquarian. Each tells his own version of what happened, but only one reveals the extraordinary truth. **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.15 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST **** 
Price: 15.00 GBP
