Czar and Sultan: The Adventures of a British Lad in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78





Archibald Forbes (1831-1900)
Czar and Sultan: The Adventures of a British Lad in the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78
New York: Scribner, 1894

Green, black, and silver on reddish brown cloth.

Art Nouveau influences abound in this cover. The silver and green fairly pop out of the cover, arresting the viewer with its design. Armstrong’s R is on full display, with a longer tail on this cover than on The Burial of the Guns.
