Description

Dive into the literary realm with The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey, a masterful historical mystery that promises to engage and intrigue. Published by the renowned Franklin Library in Franklin Center, Pennsylvania, in 1990 as part of their exclusive Mystery Masterpieces collection, this edition is a must-have for every discerning reader and collector.

Esteemed for her compelling narratives, Josephine Tey, the mind behind celebrated titles like The Man in the Queue and Miss Pym Disposes, crafts a captivating tale in The Daughter of Time. Journey alongside Scotland Yard Inspector Alan Grant as he delves deep into a 500-year-old enigma: Was it Richard III who silenced the Princes in the Tower, or does history conceal a more sinister truth?

This edition embodies the pinnacle of luxury and craftsmanship. Encased in full dark brown leather, its beauty is accentuated with genuine 22kt gold decorations that shimmer with elegance. The pictorial endpapers intricately depict the royal family tree, adding depth to the book's historical resonance. Every detail, from the high-quality paper to the sewn pages, epitomizes meticulous craftsmanship. Unlike most, these pages are sewn into the binding, ensuring an enduring reading experience. The gold gilded page edges on all three sides exude sophistication, while the raised spine bands bestow the book with its distinctive antique aura.

For aficionados of Josephine Tey books or those delving into Nicola Upson's sequential literary odyssey, The Daughter of Time stands as an indispensable addition. While the narrative echoes the allure of the lost daughters book, it remains unparalleled in its exploration of a historical puzzle.

Book Care

Taking proper care of your leatherbound and vintage books can significantly extend their lifespan and preserve the beauty of their binding. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your precious books last for generations:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Over time, direct sunlight can cause the leather to fade and degrade. Always store your books away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep Books Dry: Leather and humidity don't mix well. Keep your books in a dry, well-ventilated environment to prevent mold growth.
  • Avoid High Temperatures: High heat can dry out the leather, leading to cracks. Room temperature is ideal for your books.
  • Clean Regularly: Dust your books with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, consider a gentle leather cleaner, but always spot-test first.
  • Handle with Clean Hands: Oils and dirt from your hands can damage the pages and leather over time. Ensure your hands are clean and dry before handling.

Remember, these are books to be loved, respected, and passed down - your care ensures their stories continue to be told.
