"Anne of Geierstein" is a novel written by Sir Walter Scott in 1829. Set in Central Europe subsequent to the Yorkist victory, it tells the story of two exiled Lancastrians who are on a top-secret mission to the court of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy. However, their quest is put in danger when they run into difficulties in the Swiss mountains. Highly recommended for fans of historical fiction and not to be missed by aficionados of Scott's seminal work. Many vintage books such as this had been becoming increasingly rare or expensive. This volume is now republished in a readily available, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. First published in 1829.
