KES Prize Book 1922


The school badge is embossed in gold on the back of the book - H.A.L. Fisher's Bonapartism, a rather suitable French prize! Published in 1914 by the OUP. The prize details are on an extra pasted in page. As I recollect, I bought it in Southport from Broadhurst's bookshop twenty or so years ago. Covers are still in good nick - but the spine is a bit worn. Some fading of the imperial purple too. I wonder whether these were a special school prize edition of the book in a hard card cover? There is Napoleonic eagle device on the front. CMNV
