CONDITION: Very Good Plus in Good Minus jacket; neat gift inscription, bottom corners scuffed, otherwise straight and clean; in very edgeworn jacket with tape mends inside and also, unfortunately, along the outside bottom edge, not discoloured yet. Almost no loss of paper so looks better than grade in protector; unclipped 1.75. Juvenile hardback Written by a passionate anti-Franco journalist and writer exiled in Mexico at the beginning of WWII, this children's story evokes a Spain she would not return to, though she lived to be 96. The illustrations by her husband, in the style of Robert Lawson, give the book more character than the usual "country book." Opportunities open up for Juan as he becomes older, as an olive farmer, as a talented chorister in the Cathedral in Seville, briefly, as a bullfighter, and finally where his heart lies, as a fisherman like his father.
