The Borrowers. With Illustrations By Diana Stanley.
London, J.M.Dent and Sons Ltd., 1952. PROOF COPY OF FIRST EDITION, with a few minor differences. This volume features the same sepia illustrations as the published edition, but are printed somewhat darker. In addition, the proof was issued without the colour frontispiece, and does not have the extra copyright notice stamped to some trade copies. Bound in publisher's light blue paper covers, titles printed in black to spine and upper. Some light tanning to the top of front cover, with only minor wear (considering its fragility as a paperback). Near-fine condition. A scarce item, housed in a collector's gilt-titled protective buckram case. Norton's The Borrowers was awarded the prestigious Carnegie Medal.
