What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first edition. 

Illustrated with a monochrome frontispiece.

In the publisher's original cloth with the original unclipped dust wrappers. 

This work was written by Elspeth Huxley and provides a memoir of her childhood growing up in Africa on a coffee farm in Kenya. This work was later adapted into a British television serial under the same title.

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth with the original unclipped dust wrapper. Externally lovely with a bookplate to the front free endpaper. The wrap is very smart with sunning to the spine, a very small chip to the head of the rear joint, a small closed tear, marks to the rear and light edge wear. The odd spot and offsetting to the spine to the verso. Internally firmly bound with clean and bright pages.

Fine
