Publisher: Hamish Hamilton, London, 1961, 1st edition with unclipped d/j. 'Angela Thirkell's 29th Barsetshire novel was left unfinished on her death. Anxious tht no fragment of these county chronicles should be lost, C.A. Lejeune, who had often discussed the various characters with their creator, picks up the broken threads of the story and adds a few more of her own devising'.
Hardback with good, unclipped dustjacket, 332 pages. The cover and contents are in very good, clean, firm and bright condition. A small amount of fading at top and bottom edges of cover. The unclipped and illustrated dustjacket is in fair to good condition with a little fading to spine, a one inch closed tear at top next to spine and a little shelfwear to edges. As with all Thirkell's previous Barsetshire novels, Three Score and Ten is highly readable, amusing and thoroughly entertaining. 'Readers will meet a host of old friends in this book'. Quite rare in this condition with unclipped d/j.
