I know my place

I went back to Marchpanes in Cecil Court (see last entry) and crept out, tail between my legs after innocently asking if they had any illustrated children's books from the '60s and '70s. It seems that they only deal in rare first editions and there is no market for the books I am after. Well, I am more than happy with a well thumbed, ex-library edition on its 20th reprint so it's back to the jumble sales for me! However, I crossed the road to a very nice shop called Nigel Williams and picked up this ultra sweet 1959 copy of Tales Told Again by Walter de la Mare with lovely and rather apt illustrations by Alan Howard.
