1 Allan, Mabel Esther Chiltern School + the School That Wasn't Welsh, a Chiltern Story
Girls Gone By 2011 Softcover New 
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 For 10 years both the author & her agent chased the publisher about this, but eventually it was withdrawn & put away.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. It also containsthe short story 'The School that wasnt welsh - a Chiltern story'; ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
