My latest charity shop find. The Adventures of Gerard by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The book was found in a charity shop in Evesham and bought for £1.00.
I have read most of the Brigadier Gerard short stories - having borrowed a book from the library some years ago, I now own a copy and although the condition is not great, all the pages are intact and easily readable.
For anyone not familiar with these adventures, the Brigadier is the bravest of French Napoleonic officers, the idol of the ladies and the imperturbable egoist. His adventure often comical are great fun and a superb inspiration for Flintloque adventures. See this Wiki link for more information.
