BREV FRAN KLARA (Letters from Klara)
Schildts, 1991. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First Printing. Printed in the Swedish language. Letters to Klara and Other Stories was Tove Janssons penultimate short story collection in fact it can be considered as her last original collection as the final one The Winter Book is really more of a combination of previously published short stories along with a few unpublished ones. Letters from Klara was published in English for the first time only this year (2017). A Fine copy slight creasing to the spine tips otherwise, square, tight and clean with no signs of previous ownership. The dustjacket is in Near Fine condition with one short tear at the bottom edge, front panel and a further minor tear at the crown neither immediately noticeable. Beautifully SIGNED at the title page with soft highlighting over the pen (not really visible in the photograph). I have not seen or heard of another signed copy in many years. Signed copies of Tove Janssons works have always been scarce and are particularly difficult to obtain from this era well into her 70s when this collection was published the author undertook little or no promotional work meaning those signed books which do exist are mostly those which were gifted to friends and acquaintances, books which are rarely surrendered back into the public domain. This is one such copy and comes with provenance.
