1959 Cider with Rosie
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
A very unusual second impression of the first edition of Laurie Lee's beloved novel, 'Cider with Rosie'. In the publisher's original price unclipped dust wrapper.
This unusual second impression retains the reference to 'a fire at the piano-works almost every year' on page 272. This normally denotes a first impression as this was thought to have been corrected as a result of a libel in later impressions including the second. A bibliographically interesting copy. Clearly an extremely early second impression.
Published in the same month as the first impression - November 1959.
A semi-autobiographical novel, inspired by Lee's experiences growing up in the small Cotswolds village of Slad, Gloucestershire, and his observations on the changes to traditional village life that quickly unfolded following the First World War.
Illustrated by John Stanton Ward.
A scarce impression of this celebrated work.
In the publisher's original cloth binding, with price unclipped dust wrapper. A touch of light fading to back strip, with minor shelf wear to back strip head and tail. Dust wrapper exceptionally bright, and in fine condition. Internally, firmly bound. Pages clean and bright.
