First Edition. Youngman Carter dustjacket art. A romance of the Bristol riots. "Ann, a child of the Regency, grows up with her life sheltered from the boorishness of the period. Happily unaware of the time's poverty, unemployment, public whippings and imprisonment, the aftermath of the Napoleonic war, the slave trade, drunken orgies, roysterings - at first these are unknown to her. But her protected youth cannot save her for ever. Through her lover she is drawn into the maelstrom. From the heights of Clifton, Ann watches the burning of Bristol". Almost Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket.
