First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author to the dedicatee, Elizabeth Hassard, on the dedication page: “With love from Peter, November 1950.” Stern was known as “Peter” to her friends; Elizabeth Hassard, a friend, is also the “shanghai’d Godmother” to whom Peter’s Room by Antonia Forest is dedicated. The book was first published in the UK earlier the same year.

Octavo. Original grey boards, titles to spine green, holly design to front board green. With the dust jacket designed by Edgard Cirlin. Gift inscription to dedication page. Spine toned, boards spotted, very faint spotting to top edge; an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with sunned spine and torn extremities.
