The Dragon and the Raven; or, The Days of King Alfred - and - The Lion of the North: A Tale of the Times of Gustavus Adolphus and the Wars of Religion

Author: G A Henty
Publisher: Blackie and Son
Publish Date: 1886

Two wonderful books for boys. Bedight with gold upon the cover and flashing with living incident within these works will fascinate juvenile minds. We pay him a crown for guerdon and Mr. Henty makes us live among the Danes and their warships; and when we have done with the Vikings, he cries "Hi! Presto!" and we see Gustavus Adolphus and his brave warriors wielding the sword of the Lord and of Gideon. For this last deed of magic we pay six pieces of silver, and leave this wizard of the north for this season.
