The Borrowers Aloft. With illustrations by Diana Stanley.
J.M. Dent 1961 - FIRST EDITION, colour frontispiece with further line-drawings to the text (a couple of these full-page), a little foxing to borders of prelims and a couple of spots at head of final pages, pp. [vi], 154, crown 8vo, original blue boards, Stanley illustration printed in red to upper board, backstrip lettered in red with slight lean to spine, a touch of fading to extremities and a spot to lower board, a few faint spots to edges, endpapers illustrated in blue and spotted, dustjacket with very light dustsoiling to rear panel and rubbing to extremities, good. With a charming inscription from the author on the title-page: 'Pod, Homily, Arrietty (AND Spiller) send their love and thanks to the Carmelite Sisters - and so does Mary Norton (this is the first copy off the presses)'. Inscribed copies of the series are far from common, and this is a very special copy of its fourth installment.
