A Dartmoor Galahad
London, Longmans, Green & Co. 1923
First edition. Very Good in green boards in Good only dust jacket with attractive front cover illustration (some loss and wear at extremities and closed tear halfway down front spine fold, but all printing of titles and illustration intact).
Signed by the author, Above her signature, Beatrice Chase has written ^Signed by the author". Laid in loosely is a plain post card date post-marked 16 July 1941 and embossed with the author's address at Venton Lodge, Widecombe-on-the-Moor. The author has typed to the effect she has 'some unexpected stock in today' and lists some 4 titles to offer with prices.
On the final line, she types "I wept when I saw them again!"
Scarce novel from a controversial but interesting author who left a wealthy home in London to live on Dartmoor. Although her work is regarded as too sentimental for modern tastes, her observations on life on Dartmoor in the early 20th century are seen as valuable.
