Robson, 1986, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Top edges of text lightly spotted. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “Miles Kington, who introduced it to the British reading public, has now produced the finest flowering of Franglais — the world’s greatest literary writings, abridged to sensible lengths and translated into this economical and expressive language. In this book you have a choice of over forty masterpieces — everything from the Book of Genesis to poems by Keats and de la Mare, from William ‘Bard’ Shakespeare’s Two Henry Vs de Verona to Agatha Christie’s Mlle Marple. It makes no attempt to go anywhere near James Joyce’s Ulysses. It is, in short, the sort of book that the discerning reader has always been looking for — it means that you can now throw out almost every other book you own, with the possible exception of James Joyce’s Ulysses, and entrust yourself entirely to this collection of masterpieces. At last literature can be fun, and Miles Kington can give up writing Franglais books.”
