BOSTON, L[ucy] M. (author). Peter BOSTON (illustrator). Yew Hall. London; Faber And Faber. 1955.

8vo.; publisher's deep grey/green cloth lettered white to spine, in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [vi], 7-156; unillustrated; a very good fresh copy, both externally and internally, with the usual offset browning to free endpapers, in a clean and attractive, unclipped dustwrapper (10s 6d) with small nicking to spine ends.
First edition, second impression, published a year after the first: "The Fenland landscape and atmosphere, the flood, the first day of spring, the summer party with its terrible moonlight, the timeless fascination of Arabella, the physical entity of Yew Hall - all are brought alive, and are, still more, given a sharp haunting, poetic beauty" (blurb).
