Miss Mitford - Our Village
Miss Mitford's Our Village.
Mackmillan 1938. Hardback. Brown canvas board with gold gilt details. Introduction by Anne Thackaray Rtichie. Illustrated throughout by Hugh Thomson.
According to its bookplate, this little book was given as a third prize to Annette Kresine the fifth (or, perhaps more likely, of the fifth form) for the years 1948-9, generally. How intriguing. Lovely letter-pressed text and absolutely full of charming illustrations.
Condition: Some minor water stains to cover and fading to spine. Some foxing to edges of pages. Pages very clean inside.
Dimensions: 7" x 5"
