“I want to let you know that the William Blew "History of Steeple-chasing" arrived safely in today's post. It is truly everything that I expected and more. The book arrived in good sound condition and all the color plates, which you said, were also in fine condition. I can't thank you enough for the highly professional service you gave to me. I hope that we may work together again in the future. Again, my thanks and very best wishes.”

“ The book arrived promptly and was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper. The outer cardboard packaging was stout and prevented any damage in transit. I am very pleased with my purchase which is to be a present for my Aunt. She will be absolutely delighted with the book and I have no hesitation in recommending this seller. A very positive experience.”

About this title: Joseph Parker "The author prepares to be great, really means to be great, and, in my judgment, always succeeds in being great." Deutsche Warte ( Berlin ) "Hall Caine impresses the essential truth and dignity of human nature upon the minds of his readers." Set in Rome, this was the only of Caine`s works to be first conceived as a play. It appeared in serial form in the Lady`s Magazine and finally in book form in August 1901. This proved to be Caine`s most successful novel, it sold more than a million copies in English alone and appeared in 13 other languages. It was another romance with the hero being accused of plotting to murder the Italian king. The stage version opened at His Majesty`s Theatre, London in October 1902.
