About this item
This is the composite volume containing four books within one set of covers. They antedated Williamson's most famous book, Tarka the Otter, being written in the middle twenties. It is thought that he was fired to writing by a chance encounter with Richard Jefferies' book The Story of My Heart. This collected edition was not retrospectively edited by his more mature self save for correction of some misprints.
Faber and Faber hardback with no DJ. The blue cloth covered boards show edge and hinge wear. Gilt lettering to spine. Erratum slip inserted on P 8. A little generalised yellowing of the pages. P 193 has a small repair with a transparent patch on its fee edge. Both front and back hinges are slightly suspect but intact.
A considerable work written before his right wing views had hardened.
