Item Description: Macmillan and Co, Limited, London, 1980. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. H.R. Millar (illustrator). Facsimile Edition. The Magic City is a children's book by Edith Nesbit, first published in 1910. After Philip's older sister and sole family member Helen marries, he goes off to live with his new step sister Lucy. He has trouble adjusting at first, thrown into a world different from his previous life and abandoned by his sister while she is on her honeymoon. To entertain himself he builds a giant model city from things around the house: game pieces, books, blocks, bowls, etc. Then through some magic he finds himself inside the city, and it is alive with the people he has populated it with. Some soldiers find him and tell him that two outsiders have been foretold to be coming: a Deliverer and a Destroyer. Mr. Noah, from a Noah's Ark playset, tells Philip that there are seven great deeds to be performed if he wants to prove himself the Deliverer. Lucy, too, has found her way into the city and joins Philip as a co-Deliverer, much to his chagrin. Size: Octavo 8vo (standard book size). 333 pages.

Item Description: 2014. Otros. Book Condition: Nuevo. Dust Jacket Condition: Nuevo. Helen, hermana mayor y único miembro de la familia de Philip, se ha casado, y él debe marcharse a vivir con su nueva hermanastra, Lucy. Al principio todo son problemas. Arrojado a un mundo diferente al de su idílica vida anterior, Philip se siente abandonado por su hermana mientras ella disfruta de su luna de miel. No aguanta a Lucy, a pesar de los esfuerzos de la chica por llevarse bien con él. Además, ha caído en manos de una niñera intransigente, y de aspecto inquietante, que cada vez lo deja más aislado. Durante una ausencia de la niñera, Philip decide desobedecer y entretenerse mediante la construcción de una de esas ciudades mágicas que construía con su añorada Helen. Para ello, como siempre, se servirá de multitud de objetos de la casa: piezas de cubertería, candeleros, tableros, cubos, juegos, libros, placas, tazones, etc. Una noche, mientras se escabulle de los miembros del servicio de la casa, cae en un profundo sueño que le adentra en un mundo extraño. Además se encuentra allí, y no por casualidad, con su hermanastra Lucy. ¿Es realmente un sueño? ¿Qué hace allí la pesada de Lucy? ¿Cómo es que les suenan a ambos algunos edificios de esa curiosa ciudad? Y, ¿por qué los apresan esos guardianes con aspecto de soldaditos de plomo? . Publicado originalmente como serial en The Strand Magazine, se publicó por primera vez como libro en 1910 y fue uno de sus mayores éxitos, tanto que realizó una exposición en el Olimpia de Londres con las ciudades mágicas construidas por ella misma y publicó, en 1913, Wings and the Child (or The Building of the magic cities), un manual educativo para niños basado en el juego de construir «ciudades mágicas». Está considerado entre los mejores libros de Edith Nesbit por la crítica, por su gran seguidor en las letras norteamericanas, Edward Eager, y por Diana Wynne Jones. . . La autora con la que más me identifico es E. Nesbit. Es fabulosa, hizo geniales y graciosas historias de fantasía. Sus niños son muy reales y fue totalmente innovadora en su tiempo. . J.K. Rowling. . «Junto a Lewis Carroll, E. Nesbit es la mejor de los fabulistas ingleses que han escrito sobre los niños, tanto para niños como para adultos.». Gore Vidal en The New York Times Review. . «Una historia fascinante, llena de niveles y que será igualmente disfrutada por niños y adultos.» . Ruth Golding, máxima especialista y biógrafa de E. Nesbit. . «En cuanto a mis libros para niños, los empecé en la tradición de E. Nesbit. Sin su «The Aunt and Amabel» no hubiera empezado con las tierras de Narnia.». C.S. Lewis. . «¿Qué libros leía cuando era niña? Pocos. Una vez encontré uno de E. Nesbit en una biblioteca y ya no dejé de buscarlos por todas partes.». Diana Wynne Jones, autora de El castillo ambulante. . «Siempre era pura diversión.». George Bernard Shaw 303 LIBRO. Bookseller Inventory # 253293

Item Description: Virago Press, London, United Kingdom, 1990. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good Plus. Gerald Brockhurst (illustrator). Virago Press 1990 Edition. 8vo. -----The scan you see is the book you get. Large soft cover/trade, clean square and tight, flat uncreased spine, xvi, 331 pages, Very Good Plus condition with back cover minor corner crease & sticker residue on lower back cover. "The British anthologist gathers savory tales of the supernatural by 34 first-rate female authors, ranging chronologically from Edith Wharton and E Nesbit to Fay Weldon and Angela Carter. Nearly every entry captivates, whether comfortably old-fashioned weavings of classic foggy nights, lonely governesses & tragic romances, or sophisticated psychological studies of alienation, grief & passion. From the collection as a whole emerge distinctly female uses of the supernatural. Ghosts function as the disembodied anger of the powerless: the spirits of wronged wives & lovers return to avenge old injustices. The greatest terror is that of loss or the death of a child, the parting from a sister, the defection of a lover. And women's sensitivity to such abandonment isolates them still further. The heroines of these pieces are thought to be mad when they report sightings of ghosts. Several contemporary stories are more explicitly feminist: the spirits of one dilapidated house possess a tenant and drive her to forsake writing for cleaning; another abode wreaks havoc on a bullying husband's too dearly cherished belongings." Contents include: Preface / Intro by Jennifer Uglow / The Eyes by Edith Wharton / The Violet Car by E. Nesbit / The Crimson Blind by Henrietta D. Everett / The Token by May Sinclair / The Shadowy Third by Ellen Glasgow / The Return by Majory E. Lambe (G. G. Trenery) / The Haunted Saucepan by Margery Lawrence / Mr Tallent's Ghost by Mary Webb / The Amorous Ghost by Enid Bagnold / The Accident and a Persistent Woman by Maforie Bowen / The Waiting-Room by Phyllis Bottome / The Ghost by Catherine Wells / 'Will Ye No' Come Back Again?' by Eleanor Scott / Sophy Mason Comes Back by E. M. Delafield / The Doll's House by Hester Gorst / The Night Nurse's Story by Edith Olivier / The Voice of God by Winifred Holtby / The Follower by Cynthia Asquith / Miss De Mannering of Asham by F. M. Mayor / Roaring Tower by Stella Gibbons / Juggernaut by D. K.
