Magic and the Magician.
E. Nesbit and her children's books.
First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, “Think of the Phoenix darling when next you are washing up!! I think perhaps this book has given us both more pleasure to work on that any other. My love Noel October 1958”. This book comes from the library of June Allen, Streatfeild’s amanuensis and proof-reader – a nice association.
