At the Back of the North Wind

£40.00

Product description

At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald. Published by Blackie & Son, 1886.

Diamond, son of a poor coachman, is swept away by the North Wind -- a radiant, maternal spirit with long, flowing hair. His life is transformed by a brief glimpse of the beautiful country -- at the back of the north wind. This Victorian fairy tale has enchanted readers for more than a hundred years, and combines a Dickensian regard for the working class of mid-19th-century England with the invention of an ethereal landscape. (Source: www.goodreads.com)

Hardback edition, good overall condition. Some brown spots on pages, and damage to the spine.

Undated. First published by Alexander Strahan, 1871.
