Heyer Novel Covers

Here are snapshots of some of the original, Heyer-approved and in some cases Heyer-unapproved (look at Beauvallet, who is meant to have a beard!) covers/dust-jackets/wrappers.

Special thanks to the following people for either contributing their covers or taking the time to scan them in: from the ListServ: Linda, Laurie, Jill, Eileen and from elsewhere: Peter, Roger, Lisa, Mary Sheridan, me and Mike, from a Book for all Reasons (Mike has a Bibliography that includes some pictures as well).

Some of these have unknown artists, due to lack of information on the dust-jacket, or a missing signature due to the bad condition of the covers....if you know the missing information or have a better copy of a cover, please mail me.

Ms Heyer introduces the maps: "The Sketch Map of the Allied Army's Cantonments (see pp. 416-17) is based on one found in the fourth volume of De Bas' Campagne de 1815; that of the battle of Waterloo is taken from Siborne, and Craan, and shows the positions of the Allied and French Armies at the beginning of the Action."
