The Bedside Barsetshire.

SKU: 17351

Complied by Lance O. Tingay. Illustrated by Gwen Raverat. Extracts drawn from six Barset novels present leading figures of the county of Barset. Tingay wrote an introduction, a complete gazetteer of Barsetshire towns and villages, a list of all characters in the novels "Who's Who in Barsetshire" and their relationships with one another, and a map of the county. Tingay selected extracts as sketches long enough to be read as stories, supplemented by quotes.  Raverat's ink drawings complete the charms of this assembly. Gorgeous jacket price-cut and slight flaws, in mylar. Light browning of paste-down and FFE map. Joints tight, pages clean. No date but 1949. Alfred E. Knopf. Hb, Dj. USED. $25.00
