The Water Beetle by Nancy Mitford, 1st/1st, 1962
London: Hamish Hamilton (1962). First edition. This copy is very good++. The dust jacket has a few minor chips and wear along the edges. There is a small tear on the front. It has not been price clipped. The text block has browning and foxing. The pages have foxing but are clean without previous owner’s ink. Overall, this copy is in very good condition. Childhood memories, trips to Russia and Greece, Scott's expedition to the South Pole, country house life in Ireland, and European history.
