Richard Harris in a sulk? - Sword at Sunset

This cover looks rather fantasy medieval - armour, sword, crown and throne! Safe to say, it doesn't reflect the content of the book.

Big-boned as a Jute's - Sword at Sunset

I don't own this copy, but the picture on the cover hints that the illustrator might well have read at least the opening pages of the book. It fits in with: '... my face looked back at me, distorted by the curve of metal, but clear enough in the light of the dribbling candles, big-boned as a Jute's, and brown-skinned under hair the colour of a hayfield when it pales at harvest-time." (page 15, 1963 edition) In addition, the sword on the left of the cover looks like a long-bladed spatha, which is actually correct for the period!

Portable copy - Sword at Sunset

This is my portable copy. If I think I might want to read 'Sword' while I'm away from home, this is the copy I'll take with me!
