The Sabres Of Paradise

By Lesley Blanch

Comprising of two volumes in a slipcase. Published by Quartet Books Limited, London, 1978. Paperbacks in slipcase. Approx 21.5cm H x 13.5cm W. Vol.1 viii, 247pp; Vol.2 246pp. Index. Illustrated.

A magnificent account of the courage, fanaticism and wild excesses of an almost unknown period of Caucasian history, when the might of nineteenth-century Russia was hurled against the Moslem tribes led by Shamyl the Avar.

Lesley Blanch has brilliantly evoked this colourful period of nineteenth-century history: the violence and fury of the Caucasus, the drama of St. Petersburg and the tragic undertones of the romantic story which has never before been fully explored. 

Overall Condition: Very Good
