About this Item

Very scarce small book due to the fact that its author, the Scottish novelist, John Buchan and his wife Susan, refused to have it reprinted. Book is small, measuring just 5"x7-1/2"with handsomely decorated boards. No DJ. Two lower corners are worn through the paper and upper two have been reglued and are holding. Minor overall soiling to yellow cloth spine, primarily at back. Back cover also shows light soil to paper over board. Pages are very clean with no foxing and no names or writing. Book was written in the guise of a charming house party story while actually being a vehicle to transport the Buchans' post-war political views. It is not to be confused with Buchan's last novel of the same name written in 1936 featuring his famous character secret agent Richard Hannay which was as issued in the U.S. with the title The Man From Norland.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
