The Falconer.

1952 Award-winning, internationally acclaimed writer Rosemary Sutcliff (1920-92) was a successful artist and author despite suffering from a severe disability, Stills disease (a form of juvenile arthritis which led to many stays in hospital for painful remedial operations). Author of historical fiction, children's literature and books, films, TV and radio, including The Eagle of the Ninth, Sword at Sunset, Song for a Dark Queen, The Mark of the Horse Lord, The Silver Branch, The Lantern Bearers, Dawn Wind, &c, with over 50 books to her credit, including her autobiography Blue Remembered Hills, Rosemary Sutcliff is now universally considered one of the finest writers of historical novels for children, young adults and as she put it, all children aged 8 to 88. Over a million copies of The Eagle of the Ninth have been published, and her books translated into over twenty languages. Sutcliff was an expert miniaturist before she became a published author. Her work as a miniaturist is almost unknown though she was an expert painter in that genre. The Falconer is a watercolour on ivorine, signed and dated 1952. (Item Id: 106864)
