The Godstone and the Blackymor by T.H. White / Edward Ardizzone 1st / 1st 1959
First edition and first print published by Jonathan Cape in 1959. This is a very good ++ copy. The wrapper has a small number of flecks of rubbing to the front panel resulting in some tiny spots of loss to the pictoral jacket. The back panel is bright and crisp and it is not price clipped. The scarce wraparound band has a small tear and some wear / rubbing. The book has a small previous booksellers label to the inside board. Overall a very good ++ copy.
An Irish notebook, this is filled with bits on falconry, hunting and shooting, legend and lore and history, research on a sacred stone -- naomhog- and plenty of tales about the inhabitants of West Ireland. Profusely illustrated by Edward Ardizzone too.
