Green cloth binding, faintly sunned spine, corners and spine ends lightly bumped.

Fragile, edgeworn and chipped, unclipped dust wrapper, split at both flaps, sunned spine (seen frequently in this edition).; Published in the UK and in more recent US editions as "Happy Returns". The dust wrapper is another lovely Cosgrave II wraparound painting. This Barsetshire novel 'welcomes us back to a county still shadowed by the war and its aftermath. Old friends and new faces join the community conversation, as Sir Cecil Waring has plans for a home for boys of naval men killed in the war, while the Priory Preparatory School prepares for its move to Harefield.' In between a hesitant courtship and a headlong marriage, 'we find much discussion of gardens, dogs, and other country matters'.; AT's books recommended by Claire author of 'The Captive Reader' blog, the "Desperate Reader" blogger, Jodie R. the author of the 'Geranium Cat's Bookshelf' and obviously by members of the ATS and AT email discussion groups. :o) Image is actual copy on offer.
