The Stone Sorcerer

£165.00

Product description

One of the series about children and witches (both 'black' and 'white') this tells of two children who escape from a Black Witch only to be whisked to a bleak Fastness where the Stone Sorcerer casts frightening spells. Fortunately, however, they manage to contact their friend the White Witch, before this happens, and the tale ends happily.

Margaret Storey is a children's author, now more or less out of print, and somewhat out of favour - though her books made a great impression on the young readers of the 1960s and 70s, and are fondly remembered.

Our copy is an ex-library book, but in remarkably good shape. Bound in illustrated boards, it is protected by an unclipped dust jacket in a protective cover (plastic external and thin card internal). The jacket has just one small tear towards the bottom of the edge of the front fold-in, and a small amount of loss at the top of the spine, but is otherwise in good condition. The book itself shows some signs of shelf wear (as one might expect), with wear at top & bottom of the spine, but no frank damage. The binding is firm, and inside, there is white tape down both the front and back spine angles - possibly a repair? The pages are generally clean and bright, with occasional light stains - possibly from sticky fingers? Charles Stewart's illustrations enhance the book delightfully. The whole is in excellent condition considering its past history.
