First edition, signed by the author on the title page. Bonnet over the Windmill was one of a succession of light-hearted comedies that made Dodie Smith into “the most consistently successful woman playwright of her time” (ODNB). At the height of her fame in 1939, with war looming, she and her husband left for the USA with their pet Dalmatian, Pongo, who would inspire The Hundred and One Dalmatians, written in 1953.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt, front board ruled in blind, publisher’s device to rear board in blind. With the dust jacket. Laid-in contemporary review by W. A. Darlington. Spine gently rolled, pale marking to rear board and spine, minor foxing to edges, dust jacket a little rubbed with tape-repair to the spine. A very good copy.
