Original royal blue cloth lettered in white to spine, in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-144; with wonderful black-and-white plates throughout after engravings by Peter Boston, Lucy Boston's son; both externally and internally a fine clean copy save slight dusting to edges of book block and a small ownership inscription, in ink, to front free endpaper, in a remarkably clean, unclipped dustwrapper (13s 6d) with slight fading to spine and tiny closed nicks to head of spine and upper forecorners; scarce.
First edition. This is the third volume in the six-volume series of children's novels about the manor house, Green Knowe (based on Boston's own home in Huntingdonshire) and the people who lived there. The saga begins with The Children of Green Knowe in 1954 and ends, in 1976, with The Stones of Green Knowe.
