This is a very near fine copy of Richard Adams' 'The Girl in A Swing' in first edition, first printing. London, Allen Lane, 1980. This review copy is with the original publisher's slip, as photographed. The dust jacket is in very near fine condition and shows very light signs of shelf wear at the top and tail of the spine- it has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and are tight at the binding. This copy is without previous owner's ink. The text blocks are scarcely marked and altogether white and presentable. This is a very near fine review copy.

 

Originally published in 1980, subsequent editions changed the female lead's name from Käthe Geutner to Karin Forster, due to threat of a libel suit from someone with that name. It was adapted by director Gordon Hessler into a 1988 film starring Meg Tilly.
