(no dust jacket) [worn but still solid copy, binding intact, exterior wear/soiling, gilt lettering on spine dulled but still readable, minor bumping at all extremities, some discoloration to endpapers and a bit of soiling to a few pages]. (The Academy Edition of International Authors) Series (color frontispiece) "A narrative of stirring events in the career of one of the numerous pretenders to the throne of Russia that arose after the strong rule had passed of Ivan IV, or, as he is known in history, 'Ivan the Terrible.' The tale recalls the one by M. Prosper Mérimée, the French historian, novelist, and dramatist, 'The False Demetrius,' which deals with the same character, a claimant for the honors of Russian Tsardom, whose brief rule at the beginning of the 17th century was full of trouble and ended tragically, as Mr. Bain's story does also." [from the introduction by general series editor G. Mercer Adam].
