Brazil, Angela - The School in the Forest. Blackie, not dated, late 1950s? ... St. Hilda's moves to a lovely old manor house in the Lake District, and school and staff settle down to make the best of their surroundings. They are a lively community and go exploring, boating and picnicking, always finding some mystery or pretext for adventure. Jean, the heroine of the book, is an orphan, a lonely and difficult child who lost her only sister when she was very young, and has always blamed herself for the tragedy. The story moves gaily among the day to day events of her shcool and home life, tells how she befriended a little gipsy girl who comes to school, and comes in the end to a most surprising and happy climax. (flap). 7¾" x 4¾", 286pp, red cloth, black blocking, hardback. Illustrated with a monochrome frontsipiece by Drake Brookshaw and the attractive wrapper. Lower-front corner very slightly rounded; endpaper browning; name written at top of half-title; very, very slight edge-foxing; good; complete with good (edge-wear, slightly 'dusty') price-cut wrapper.
