By Special Request: New Stories for Girls Written Specially for Noel Streatfeild.
Collins. 1954. Hardback. Blue board with gilt detailing. Original unclipped dust jacket.
In the early 1950's Noel Streatfeild (author of Ballet Shoes) commissioned this book of nineteen stories written especially for girls. This beautiful book is the result. Each story takes on a different subject and there's a wonderful mix of well-known and less well-known authors. Fully illustrated throughout (including illustrations by Shirley Hughes) with a general introduction, postscript and introductions to each individual story and author written by Streatfeild herself.
Condition: Dust cover a little torn and scuffed in places. Some minor foxing and yellowing. Colours still vibrant. A gorgeous addition to any bookshelf.
Dimensions: 7.5" x 5"
