Kelman Frost - Son of the Sahara
Kelman Frost's Son of the Sahara.
Hutchinson and Co 1962 First Edition . Hardback. Blue beneath with illustrated boards. Illustrated throughout by Victor G Ambrus.
Whilst many have heard of the work of D H Lawrence, few have heard of the frequently anonymous Kelman Frost who wrote for D. C. Thomson's boys' story papers and had over 70 million words of fiction to his name.
He comes out of the shadows in this first edition which once very obviously belonged to Eastbourne Boys School and sports many labels, stamps and library cards to prove it.
The back cover advertises a different book altogether (a curious choice). This is the story of a young sweet seller in the market place of Yelten who dreams of owning his own horse and how he comes to realise that dream.
Condition: Some scuffing to the dust jacket and some minor water marks. Some minor marking to pages. Lots of attached library ephemera.
Dimensions: 7.5" x 5"
