BRENT-DYER, Elinor M. (author). Redheads At The Chalet School. Edinburgh & London; W. & R. Chambers, Ltd. 1964.
8vo. Original mid blue linson boards gilt, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. [viii], 9-208; with a black-and-white frontispiece by D. Brook; a fine, and apparently unread, copy protected by an equally fine, unclipped, dustwrapper (8s 6d).
First edition. Flavia ("Copper") Ansell joins the Chalet School in Switzerland under very unusual circumstances, leading to a mountain of speculation. Why has the redhead changed her name? Why is she forbidden to speak to her step-father on the train? And why does an American woman show such an interest in the red-headed students there?
