Volume V of the Domesday Books Signed first edition First edition, 1996. Signed by the author to the title page. Hardback. 307pp. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. Domesday Commissioners Ralph Delchard and Gervase Bret's arrival in Canterbury augurs well for their visit. Their hosts are pleasant, the legal case they have been sent to deal with seems straightforward and Ralph has his new wife, Golde, with him. But almost as soon as they arrive, they learn the tragic news that a young girl, Bertha, has been found dead near the village of Harbledown with the mark of a snake bite on her neck. Gervase is suspicious - the tale of the serpent bite seems to ring false and Brother Martin, head of the leper hospital confirms these doubts when he tells Gervase that Bertha was almost certainly strangled before she was bitten. Then another gruesome murder takes place. Book in very good condition. Light toning to the paper edges. a nice clean copy. Dust jacket in near fine condition. Unclipped. very minor edge wear only.
