2004. Hardcover. First Tartarus Edition, First Printing, thus. Limited to only 300 copies. Completely Sold Out and Out-of-Print from the Publisher. Reissue of this classic 1940 Fantasy Novel. Intro by Glen Cavaliero. 266pp. When Norman Huntley and Henry Beddow, sheltering from the rain in a dismal Irish country church, placate the sexton by telling him that they knew of his beloved pastor (now departed), there is no reason to suppose that there is any harm in the invention. It is purely for their own amusement that they create a fictional mutual friend: an elderly lady, Miss Hargreaves. The sexton does not doubt her existence. For him, Miss Hargreaves is as real as you or I. And she gradually assumes a fully-rounded character in the imaginings of the two young men as they while away their holiday in expanding the details of her life: her book of poetry, her parrot Dr Pepusch, her harp, and her hip-bath. It is merely a continuation of their little joke when they write to invite her to visit them back in their cathedral home-town of Cornford. It is something of a surprise when Miss Hargreaves accepts their invitation. And their disbelief turns to confusion and horror as, one evening soon afterwards, her train pulls into Cornford Station. BEATUTIFUL BRAND NEW UNOPENED COPY. Tartarus books are especially well-made high quality books and this is no exception. AN EXCELLENT GIFT IN GIFT-GIVING CONDITION. Mint in Mint Dust Jacket with Ribbon Page Marker. N° de réf. du libraire 7347
