A Wintry Tale
Scribners, 1932. First Edition, thus. Very good condition. Green Boards Gilt Design. 8vo. 103 pp. Bound in blue-green cloth, with gilt lettering and decoration to the spine and to the front board. Written six years before Barrie's death, this novella marks a return to the rural Scottish setting of his earliest works, including "Auld Licht Idylls" and "A Window in Thrums." This wintertime ghost story was originally published on Christmas Eve of 1931 as a free supplement to the Times. Thus, Barrie returns here to his Scottish and journalistic roots.
