About this Item

First UK edition, first impression of the noted children's author's scarce fifth book. A near fine book, straight and tight with sharp corners, slightly faded at the edges of the cloth and a bit of offsetting to the end pages - in a very good plus (or better) dustjacket with mild sunning to the spine and some rubbing to the edges and folds. The jacket has been clipped at the lower corner of the front flap, and repriced with a sticker from the publisher. Now for the good part: This is an inscribed presentation copy from the author, with the handwritten inscription (in black ink) on the dedication page. On the dedication page is printed: "For Anthony / who took us there" and underneath, in ink: "And for Geoffrey Hill / many years later / because he said he liked it / Ann Thwaite / 1993". Laid in is a note card from the author and her husband, on which she has written, presumably to Mr. Hill above: "I have only three copies left in the world but I'd like you to have one, much as I fear you may be disappointed if you read it again. Alberta's not ready for it yet, of course. Did I tell you it's still in print in Japan and Greece? It was never published in the States & has long been out of print in England. It was so good to see you again, & to meet Alice & Bertie. Love, Ann". Bookseller Inventory # C/YA247
