Excellent "adult novel about knighthood by the author of The Imperial Governor." Shipway wrote a series of impressive novels on knighthood that were models of their kind. The Knight has become a Medievalist and cult classic with gruesome descriptions of hand-to-hand combat, sieges, and other pointed encounters.
Bright and tight internally; dust jacket has a few clean nicks and is very slightly rubbed.
