The Spur and the Lily by Howard Jones

 Painting by Patrick Nicolle. Thanks to Mark Vaughn for finding this. It's historical fiction from Look and Learn. Set during the Monmouth Rebellion maybe you remember it? I don't as I was a Tell me Why reader.

"I heard the thunder of cavalry and saw the black belly of a horse above me". A dramatic moment from the first episode of the novel 'The Spur and the Lily' by Howard Jones, illustrated by Pat Nicolle.

This adventure set during the reign of King James II featuring the Monmouth Rebellion and premiered in Look and Learn issue 306, published 25th November 1967. Buy the original artwork here.
