Mistress Masham's Repose

Putnam, 1946. Eichenberg, Fritz. First Edition. Cloth. Missing dust jacket. Text on spine is difficult to read due to rubbing. Flyleaf bears sticker nameplate of original owner, Margeurite Hansen. This is an illustrated first edition of the beloved children's classic by the author of The Sword in the Stone. The fantastical tale of a lonely young girl who discovers a colony of Lilliputians living near her home, this novel has more in common with Jonathan Swift's satires and the allegorical films of Guillermo del Toro than with other children's tales of its day. Terry Pratchett once stated that Mistress Masham's Repose was his favorite novel. Very good. Item #52
