Jubilee Hall; or, “There’s No Place Like Home”

£10.99

Product description

Jubilee Hall; or, “There’s No Place Like Home”, by the Hon. Mrs Greene, Thomas Nelson and Sons, n. d. but probably very early 1900s, London, Edinburgh and New York. Blue cloth boards, embossed art deco decoration (white and black on blue background) to front & spine. 220 pp. Four wonderfully Edwardian colour plates by H. P. Clifford.

Who, you may ask, was the honourable Mrs Greene? Or who, for that matter was H. P. Clifford? I’ve not been able to answer those interesting questions, although quite a few of this lady’s children’s books are still cluttering up the shelves of musty old second-hand bookshops throughout the UK. But here’s a flavour of her inimitable style: ‘ “Come along, Fred, old boy, and don’t be so cranky,” cried Harry, taking his brother by the shoulder and thrusting his hand through his arm. “I want awfully to pal up with you, and make things straight if we can . . .”

It’s a children’s adventure story of sorts, with oodles of period charm, and some charming illustrations (‘The flame of the candle flickered horribly’!). In relatively good nick throughout, though there’s some inevitable foxing on all three edges, and on quite a few pages too. Enchanting, and a snip for collectors of Edwardian children’s literature at £10.99.
