The Kingdom by the Sea. [Inscribed & Signed copy]
Robert Westall:

The Kingdom by the Sea. [Inscribed & Signed copy]

London: Methuen, 1990. First edition. 176pp. Title page faintly smudged, and inscribed 'For .... / With all my love' / (signed and dated (1991)by Westall). Laid in is a letter received by the author from a teacher troubled by Westall's occasional use of 'offensive words' in books for children ('bugger' is spoken in anger once in this book): it is dated earlier than the gifting of the book, so Westall may have given it with the book. Pages clean and fresh and unmarked. 20.5x13cms, in the original salmon cloth-textured binding titled in gilt, bright and firm, extremities blunted. In the protected unclipped pictorial dust jacket, bright and clean, spine ends knocked, tiny scuffs at corners. A good copy, exceptional with Westall's signature. Very Good in very good dust-jacket.
