No Flaws or Blemishes but minimal careful shelf handling. First Edition, First Printing. 8vo; 9.25 inches tall; 830 pages with index and chapter notes. ------------- Hugely ambitious . . . From the mists, Mr. Davies summons the kingdoms; he records their emergence, their flowering and their demise-whether by 'internal diseases' or 'forraign warre' in Thomas Hobbes's words. And he examines the traces that the kingdoms have left behind, in works of art or a piece of rock or perhaps just a place name. [The Wall Street Journal]
