Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

UK first edition, first print paperback of JOHN BUCHAN The Presbyterian Cavalier, by Andrew Lownie and published by Pimlico in 2002. First published in the UK by Constable and Co in 1995.  Signed by Andrew Lownie on the title page (see picture below)

The book itself is in good condition with just minimal handling and storage wear (small pressure mark on the back cover edge and last few pages but nothing drastic). 'Signed Edition' sticker on front cover. Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions, apart from the author's as stated above.

Readers whose familiarity with John Buchan's life and works ends on the closing page of Mr. Standfast or at the final frame of Hitchcock's The Thirty-Nine Steps may find it difficult to believe that their author, beyond his position as the acknowledged father of the modern spy thriller, led a life that ranged widely across the landscape of British politics and culture. Buchan's literary career, one that started almost as an afterthought, was itself astonishing, comprising a hundred titles that ranged from the thrillers for which he is now best known to children's books, from biographies to romances, from poetry to screenplays. But Buchan's literary output represented only a fraction of his life experience; he moved in the uppermost reaches of British political, military, and cultural affairs, acting as speechwriter and confidant to two Prime Ministers, and counting luminaries as varied as Virginia Woolf, Robert Graves, and T. E. Lawrence as his colleagues and friends. He served as Director of Information during World War I and later as a member of Parliament, ending his long career as the beloved Governor-General of Canada. Andrew Lownie's acclaimed biography - the first in over thirty years - reveals a character as complex and fascinating as any in his great quartet of thrillers starring master spy Richard Hannay. He succeeds in the daunting task of retelling Buchan's life in all its variety, breadth, and complexity. Based on exhaustive research and drawing on private papers previously unavailable to biographers, this is a compelling picture of Buchan's life, and a panoramic view of British political, social, and literary circles during the first half of the twentieth-century.
