Hardcover in cloth; 7.5 x 5 inches; 406, [2] pages; 26 black and white illustrated plates; binding illustration attributed to Howard Pyle (Richard Minsky). Mauve cloth decorated in grays and silver, boards are clean and square except for a mild bump and nick at top front corner that is beginning to fray, spine sun darkened, pages lightly toned from age, binding a sound. The Grey Man is a fast-paced adventure romance set in Ayrshire, Scotland, in the reign of James VI. Written when S.R. Crockett was at the height of his power and popularity as a novelist, the story deals with the violent feud between the Kennedys of Cassillis and the Kennedys of Bargany and introduces some of his most memorable characters drawn from local folklore. The fearsome grey-clad figure of John Mure of Auchindrayne and the legendary cannibal, Sawny Bean, stalk the canvas of a novel that captures the turbulence of Scottish history. (Goodreads)
