Love in a Cold Climate, MITFORD, Nancy
534 7331 MITFORD, Nancy Love in a Cold Climate
Hardcover Folio Society: London; c1949, 1992; First Edition Thus 242 pages Near Fine 
This delightful edition has an introduction by Pauline Tennant and seventeen black and white plates by Roland Pym. Wonderful wraparound pictorial binding, clean, no binding problems. A lovely copy. No dust wrapper as issued, publisher's slipcase lightly soiled and sunned at edges.; "Love in a Cold Climate" is the sequel to, and has the same narrator as "The Pursuit of Love". Fanny's tale turns to Polly Hampton, the outstandingly beautiful, wealthy daughter of Lady Montdore, Lady Montdore's devoted attendant, Boy Dougdale--the Lecherous Lecturer, and the Canadian cousin of the Montdore's, Cedric. It is a tale of sly poking fun, charm, and absorption. Polly is a contemporary of Fanny and Linda's, with even fewer choices to pursue in the game of love and marriage. Like "The Pursuit of Love", this novel is robust in the amazing supporting cast, with the charmingly eccentric Uncle Davey at the forefront. Basis for the 1980 and the 2001 television mini-series.; Recommended by Holly H. of the ATS, and AT email discussion list and by several others. This title recommended by Lyn B., author of the 'I Prefer Reading' blog and member of the DES email discussion group. 'I have 3 copies of Love in a Cold Climate now...'

No spine creases, covers creased and a bit edgeworn, several page corners creased; pages clean, none loose. ; 'They were beautiful, brilliant, gloriously eccentric, and their humor was legendary. Everything was perfect, except for their politics. This is the story of a close, loving family splintered by the violent ideologies of Europe between the wars. Jessica was a Communist; Debo became the Duchess of Devonshire; Nancy, the eldest, was one of the best-selling novelists of her day; the ethereally beautiful Diana, married to the Fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley and imprisoned without trial through most of World War II, was the most hated woman in England; Unity Valkyrie Mitford, born in the mining town of Swastika, Alaska, would become obsessed with Adolf Hitler, whom she met on at least 140 occasions. When war was declared between England and Germany, she shot herself in the head. The Mitfords had style, presence, and were extremely gifted: four would go on to write best-selling books. Above all, they were funny—hilariously and often mercilessly so.'; Image is actual copy on offer.

539 7354 MONTGOMERY, L. M. Blue Castle, The
Softcover; Mass Market PB Bantam Books: NY; c1926, 1989; 218 pages Good 
This is the Bantam Starfire edition with cover art by Ben Stahl. Spine and cover creases, edgewear. Pages yellowed (seen before in this edition) several pages have short closed tears at foreedge margin making this a reading copy only; interior pages clean.; A fun story, set in the Muskoka region of Ontario, of a 29 year-old-spinster coming into her own. For ages 12 and up so more of a young adult book than a children's book. Many LM Montgomery admirers say this is their favourite of her books. High praise indeed as this author wrote so many wonderful books. Readers of McCullough's "The Ladies of Missalonghi" (also in stock) will find numerous similarities between the two books. The results of the plagiarism case brought by the heirs of L M Montgomery against McCullough have been sealed.; "At twenty-nine Valancy had never been in love, and it seemed romance had passed her by. Living with her overbearing mother and meddlesome aunt, she found her only consolations in the "forbidden" books of John Foster and her daydreams of the Blue Castle. Then a letter arrived from Dr. Trent -- and Valancy decided to throw caution to the winds. For the first time in her life Valancy did and said exactly what she wanted. Soon she discovered a surprising new world, full of love and adventures far beyond her most secret dreams." Image is actual copy on offer.

307 pages; Light spine and cover creases, a bit of edgewear and rubbing, pages clean and bright. Odd cover illustration but a nice copy. ; The first book in the series. 'As soon as Anne Shirley arrived at the snug, white farmhouse called Green Gables, she knew she wanted to stay forever... but would the Cuthberts send her back to the orphanage? Anne knows she's not what they expected -- a skinny girl with decidedly red hair and a temper to match. If only she could convince them to let her stay, she'd try very hard not to keep rushing headlong into scrapes or blurt out the very first thing she had to say. Anne was not like anybody else, everyone at Green Gables agreed; she was special -- a girl with an enormous imagination. This orphan girl dreamed of the day when she could call herself Anne of Green Gables. 'Highly recommended.
