4 Innes, Michael. LORD MULLION'S SECRET.
London Gollancz 1981 057502903X / 9780575029033 First British Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
192 pp, 8vo (8" H). "Mullion Castle is a very Stately Home. When the paying customers aren't cluttering up the place, it's the home of the Earl and his family, who include his delightful daughters Patty and Boosie, and dotty Great-aunt Camilla. Also his wife, whose portrait he has now commissioned his old schoolfellow, Charles Honeybath R.A., to paint. Honeybath (is) an astute and inquisitive observer of events; and now he has another intriguing complex of puzzles to ponder over. For instance, who has removed a valuable Hilliard miniature, an ancestral portrait, and substituted an obvious print; and why? Who has removed two of Great-aunt Camilla's water-colours of Italian scenes, and substituted sketches made by her in France; and again, why? And how does it come about that a young undergardener, with the name of Swithin, should posses the family features so strikingly, and be such an attraction to Lady Patience - i.e., Patty? Honeybath addresses himself to these and other teasing problems, while Michael Innes goes his own witty, engaging, tongue-in-cheek way, following what may seem to be a predictable course but surprising us all, Honeybath included, at the finish." Tiny dint on top edge of front board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, soft crease at top of rear flap. 
Price: 15.00 USD
 
 
5 Opie, Iona and Opie, Peter, editors. I SAW ESAU: THE SCHOOLCHILD'S POCKET BOOK.
Cambridge, Massachusetts Candlewick Press 1992 1564020460 / 9781564020468 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Maurice Sendak. 
160 pp, 7 1/2" H. " 'Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.' That's what children chant when they are being teased; it's what their parents chanted, and their grandparents and great grandparents before them. Collected in this invaluable book are the wit and wisdom of generations of schoolchildren - more than one hundred and seventy rhymes ranging from insults and riddles to tongue twisters, jeers, and jump-rope rhymes. With Iona Opie's introduction and detailed notes and Maurice Sendak's remarkable pictures - vignettes, sequences, and full-page paintings both wickedly funny and comically sad - this book offers knowledge and entertainment to all who open it. Like a collection of Mother Goose nursery rhymes or Grimm's fairy tales, (it) deserves a place among the classic texts of childhood." Slight bump at bottom of rear hinge. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, light wrinkling at top of front flap-fold and flap. 
Price: 10.00 USD
