This book was not published commercially during the author's lifetime. The 1st ed was an 8vo; softback; pp177 privately published as one of the author's 'lost' books ie one of her manuscripts that never originally saw the light of a book shop or a library. Written in 1950, this was sold to a publisher in 1951. This publisher was new to this author - and in the event never did publish any. For 10 years both the author & her agent chased the publisher about this, but eventually it was withdrawn & put away. At this time school stories were less popular generally and she was publishing other things. However with the regrowth in popularity of school stories in the late 1980's, and with the author feeling that it was one of her best, she decided to publish it privately, with no updating (she also says that the character in the book, Rose, was a forerunner of Drina, the star of a series of books she published under the Pseudonymn Jean Estoril) . Here you find it , using the text of the 1990 privately printed book. The book also containsan article about the authoir and her work, a bibliography, publishing history and note on the text.

Privately Published 1981 Softcover Very Good+ Signed by Author
1st ed. Softback. 44pp. VG. Inside the front cover is inscribed With best wishes from the author with her name address & date; vg+; a collection of the author's poems, originally published in magazines, and forming a kind of autobiography as a record of her war time moods. When war was declared in 1939 the author was 24 years old. She had had several short stories published, and written 5 as yet unsold novels as well as a few unpublished children's books. Almost as soon as war was declared, A & C Black said they would have published 'Grim Glen castle' in 1940 if it hadnt been for the outbreak of war - finally published by Warne as The glen castle mystery in 1948 - her first published book. Prior to 1939 Mabel Esther Allan had never written any poetry, but she says that war brought her a heightened awareness that made her feel she could write poetry. This gift deserted her after the war. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; Signed by Author
