New Moon with the Old, The, SMITH, Dodie
26 7101 SMITH, Dodie New Moon with the Old, The
Softcover; Mass Market PB Corsair: London; c1963, 2012; 377 pages As New 
Unread copy received with faint edgewear.; The author of the delightful 'I Capture the Castle' provides us with another enchanting novel. Devotees of D.E. Stevenson will smile at the similarities between secretary-housekeeper Jane Minton and many a Stevenson heroine. Jane is warmly welcomed by two brothers, two sisters and a pair of loyal maids to an English country home that is as comfortable as one could wish. Disaster strikes the absentee father, though, giving the opportunity for all five main characters to find their feet in life. It is hard to say which character holds the most compelling (and amusing) story. The steps each sibling and Jane take to make their way in life are wholly engrossing. It is guaranteed the reader will find kinship with Merry, Drew, Clare, Richard or Jane, as each of their adventures is relayed in turn.; Warmly recommended by Holly H., Kristi J., and Tom J. of the AT and DES email discussion lists and by Joan B. of the AT email discussion list.

Quarter cloth bindings with decorated paper covered boards and decorated endpapers. Two of the lovely volumes are near fine.The very good 'Barchester Towers' volume has circular dampstains on front and a few white spots on back. No dust wrappers as issued, blue slipcase, faintly dusty, has bumped corners.; The first three volumes of "The Barsetshire Novels", the first serial fiction in English literature. The six novel series tells the story of the professional and landed classes in the Victorian cathedral town of Barchester and the surrounding county. Angela Thirkell readers will recognize many of the family names and place names as she 'borrowed' Trollope's Barsetshire for her own novels of 20th century English life. 'The Warden' introduction by Owen Chadwick, 'Barchester Towers' introduction by Ruth Rendell, 'Doctor Thorne' introduction by P.D. James.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS and the Angela Thirkell email discussion group:'Contemporary reviewers describe "Barchester Towers" as a comic masterpiece, centering on the burning question of who will rule the diocese of Barchester. They are absolutely correct. In this novel, second in the famous Barsetshire series, Trollope introduces one of the most detestable characters in all of literature, Mrs. Proudie, and one of the slimiest, Mr. Slope. There is the dear eccentric and mild Mr. Harding, his highly marriageable daughter Eleanor, and perhaps my favorite, the Archdeacon Grantly, the spiritual opposer to the Proudie-Slope contingent and a stubborn, comic, and still admirable character. This is a classic and must reading.' This three volume set will incur extra shipping charges if sent outside the US. Images are actual copies on offer.

351 pages; No spine creases, covers creased and edgeworn especially at top rear corner, page edges lightly yellowed and soiled; interior pages clean, none loose.; Cover images are from the Granada Television/ WNET television series starring Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons. ' This novel was recently selected by 'Time Magazine' as one of the one hundred best English-language novels written from 1923 to the present.; "This is my favorite novel, second only to The Diary of the Provincial Lady," writes Holly H. of the ATS and AT and DES discussion groups. "I can't help but love the narrator Charles Ryder and the members of theMarchmain family. Charles is the quintessential looker-on who faithfully records a glorious lost past and grace that was England before World War II, as personified by the Marchmain family, in particular. This is the story of his love for two of the wealthy Catholic children, the innocent yet dissolute Lord Sebastian and the ultimately disconsolate Lady Julia. They are surrounded by memorable characters of the first order. One of the greatest literary pleasures of my life is discovering this gem of a novel and re-reading it on an annual basis. I highly recommend it to you."
