Whistle Down The Wind by Mary Hayley Bell 1st / 1st 1958
First UK edition and first print published by Boardman in 1958. This is a very good ++ copy. The wrapper is very complete and hasn't been price clipped displayed the correct price of 12s 6d. It has a few marks to the back panel and to the top corner of the front panel. The spine is not sunned. The wrapper is a very nice example and in collectable condition as is the book. A previous owners name has been neatly written to the inside board. The boards are very clean and the pages have no foxing to speak of. It is a smart very good ++ copy.
