Smith, Dodie
The Midnight Kittens and The Girl from the Candle-Lit Bath
London W. H. Allen 1978. First editions. Both inscribed by the author: "For Jon Wynne-Tyson with love from Dodie Smith. 1978.". The recipient was the son of Dodie's friend, Esmé Wynne-Tyson, who she met during her acting days, at the same time as her best friend, Phyllis Morris. Jon was an author, publisher and King of Redonda, who was friends with Dodie and Phyllis and corresponded with them throughout their lives, claiming some credit in having inspired Dodie to write her most commercially successful novel, 'The Hundred and One Dalmatians'. The books are firmly bound, the extremities are a little bumped and rubbed. The text blocks are lightly toned with minor spots of foxing. The dust jackets are the originals and not price clipped, they are lightly rubbed and creased to the edges with some minor marks. Dodie's final two published novels, one a crime thriller, the other a book for children, illustrated by Anne & Janet Grahame Johnstone, who also illustrated both 'The Hundred and One Dalmatians' and 'The Starlight Barking'. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Jonathan Frost Rare Books Limited [Liverpool, United Kingdom]
