Frost in April by Malachi Whitaker 1st / 1st 1929


FIRST UK EDITION published by Jonathan Cape in 1929. This is a rare very near fine copy. The wrapper is immaculate with no wear to the spine, corners or edges. There are no marks and it hasn't been price clipped displaying the correct price of 7s 6d. net. The book is very clean with straight boards. There are no marks or previous owners ink. There is a smattering of very light foxing marks to the side text block. Overall a highly collectible very near fine copy. 


Malachi Whittaker was a critically acclaimed writer in her time, admired by her peers. For a short period in the 20's she was prolific, writing 100 short stories. These were published in four collections by Jonathan Cape. This, perhaps her most sought after has 20. It is a scarce book with the highly illustrative Bangley dust wrapper and particularly so in this condition.
