About This Item

William Blackwood and Sons. Edinburgh and London. 1915. FIRST EDITION. (7.5 x 5 inches). Some minor browning to page edges, as is often the case with this title, but less so than usually found. Publishers blue cloth which is rubbed and bumped to the edges and has a white mark to the front panel but overall a very good copy.

Synopsis

JOHN BUCHAN was born in Perth in 1875, the son of a Scottish Presbyterian minister, and educated at Glasgow. He gained a first at Oxford University, where he began writing, producing two volumes of essays, four novels and two collections of stories and poems before the age of twenty-five. He worked briefly as a lawyer, then served as a private secretary in the colonial administration of South Africa after the Boer War. During the war he worked both as a journalist and at Britain's War Propaganda Bureau, eventually becoming Director of Information. He published his most popular novel, The Thirty-Nine Steps , in 1915, and it has never since been out of print. In 1935 Buchan was elevated to the peerage, becoming Baron Tweedmuir of Elsfield, and later that year was appointed Governor General of Canada by King George V. He died on February 11, 1940.
