Warfe, R. E. - First Term for Ziggy; or, Sex Scandal at Greyfriars. Hodder and Stoughton, 1997, 1st. 7¾" x 5", 208pp, green cloth, silver blocked spine lettering, hardback. Illustrated with 19 full-page monochrome drawings taken from girls' school stories of the past and given a humourous caption, usually sexual innuendo. From the flap: New Girl Ziggy simply adores Greyfriars and all her topping new chums, but there are some things she just can't fathom. Why is her class so interested in prophylaxis when they're not even studying Greek philosophers? Wouldn't dropping acid make a dreadful hole in the carpet? And if the girls in the deportment class are obliged to wear rubber and leather, shouldn't they at least be in the school colours? Warfe's indomitable heroines triumph at lessons and on the sporting field while pursuing a constant round of illicit sex, recreational drugs and other spiffing wheezes - always managing to be back in time for tea. It's Enid Blyton with a twist, the sort of place you never encountered in all those years of girls' school stories - but you will end up wishing you had. ... End of flap. Top-front corner of front-board bumped; half-moon gold sticker in top-front corner of front-free endpaper; the usual, with this edition, slight page-edge browning; very good; complete with very good (¾" tear to foot of back-flap fold) wrapper.
