De Adelaar Van Het Negende | The Eagle of the Ninth | Dutch original edition

This is the cover of the 1965 Dutch version of Rosemary Sutcliff‘s acclaimed children’s novel The Eagle of the Ninth. Inside are the same beautiful illustrations by C. Walter Hodges that are evident in all the early editions of the novel. This particular illustration is of Marcus and his Legion, ‘The Fourth Gaulish Auxiliaries of the Second Legion’, breaking formation in their battle with a British tribe.
