1 Irwin, Margaret That Great Lucifer - A Portrait of Sir Walter Ralegh
London Chatto and Windus 1960 First Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
Gold title and decoration on purple boards which are clean and unmarked with no wear. Internally there is foxing to endpapers and closed edges else clean, tight and unmarked. Dustjacket has foxing to the reverse with only a touch of wear to spine tail and is not price clipped. 320 pages. 8 illustrations. 'You have lived like a star' said Sir Walter Ralegh's judges, 'and like a star you must fall'. He was indeed the Lucifer. the Morning Star of the Elizabethan age, his rise to fame as meteoric as his fall was tragic. To her portrait of this extraordinary man, the author brings all the zest, colour and creative imagination which have informed her historical novels. She shows him as a penniless sailor, attacking the world-power of Spain with his single ship; a rough soldier from 'Commando' campaigns, flashing up to become Queen Elizabeth's intimate friend and 'oracle' and the most superb of her courtiers.
