A COMPLETE UK FIRST EDITION SET OF THE FLASHMAN NOVELS ALL SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

FRASER GEORGE MACDONALD I am pleased to offer a complete UK first edition set of the Flashman novels all flat-signed or inscribed by the late George MacDonald Fraser who died in January 2008. The set comprises: Flashman (London: Herbert Jenkins 1969). First UK Edition. A near fine copy in a very fine D/W with absolutely no fading to the spine whatsoever. Signed on the title page by the Author as George M Fraser. Royal Flash (London: Barrie & Jenkins 1969). First UK Edition. A near fine (or better) copy in like D/W with no fading to the spine and with a Barrie & Jenkins decimilisation sticker over the original price (still visible) on the inside flap. An outstanding copy. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George M Fraser". Flash for Freedom! (London: Barrie & Jenkins 1971). First UK Edition. A near fine copy with some foxing to the page block edges in like D/W. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George Fraser? Flashman at the Charge (London: Barrie & Jenkins 1973). First UK Edition. Heavy foxing to the page block edges which has crept into the text block in places otherwise a VG+ copy in like D/W with the spine and part of the back panel lightly faded in places. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George Fraser? Flashman in the Great Game (London: Barrie & Jenkins 1975). First UK Edition. A previous owner's book-plate to the front paste-down otherwise a near fine copy in a VG price-clipped spine-faded D/W with a closed tear and associated creasing at the top left hand corner of the front panel. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George M Fraser? Flashman?s Lady (London: Barrie & Jenkins 1977). First UK Edition. A near fine (or better) copy in like D/W with cream portion of the spine slightly toned. Inscribed on the title page by the Author: "To William/ all good wishes/ George Fraser". Flashman and the Redskins (London: Collins 1982). First UK Edition. Slightly pushed spine tips otherwise a VG+ copy in like D/W with no price to the inside flap (probably an export copy). Inscribed by the Author on the ½ title: ?To Randy / George M Fraser? Inscribed copies are scarce. Flashman and the Dragon (London Collins Harvill 1985). First UK Edition. A fine copy in a very fine D/W. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George M Fraser? Flashman and the Mountain of Light (London: Collins Harvill 1990). First UK Edition. Very small rust-mark to the edge of the front free end-paper otherwise a near fine copy in like D/W with no price on the inside flap (likely an export copy). Signed on the title page as "George M Fraser". Flashman and the Angel of the Lord (Harvill Harper Collins 1994). First UK Edition. A fine copy in like D/W. Inscribed on the title page by the Author to a fellow author: To Mike Connolly/ George Fraser? Flashman and the Tiger (London: Harper Collins 1999). First UK Edition. A very fine copy in like D/W. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George M Fraser? Flashman on the March (London: Harper Collins 2005). First UK Edition. A very fine copy in like D/W. Signed on the title page by the Author as ?George M Fraser? I cannot help but think what an excellent long term investment this signed set of books is likely to be. In the latter part of his life Mr Fraser did virtually no signings whatsoever and finding signed copies of some of the early and mid-range titles has now become very difficult. Photographs available upon request. One for the Pension Fund! For the set of 12 books
