TODD, Barbara Euphan.
Worzel Gummidge and the Railway Scarecrows.
Illustrated by Jill Crockford.
First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed on the dedication page, “+ to Esther with much love, Christmas 1955, from Barbara”. The recipient was Todd’s friend and fellow author Esther Boumphrey – the two had collaborated on books in the 1940s. Signed Worzel Gummidge titles are scarce, and particularly desirable with such a nice association.
