Sorry, I've been away a little while, not literally, just away in the real world. A short post to come back with just to show off this lovely dustjacket. It came with a recent purchase of books and is by Barnett Freedman, who studied under Paul Nash. I love 1930s-50s dustjackets and its a real struggle not to buy them when I see them. This, however, came in a lot I bought recently and, sadly, I have had to put it up for sale. I haven't done a hufe about of research but I believe Freedman did a number of jacket designed for De La Mare's books.
Responses to all those people who've been kind enough to message here or to send email are coming soon.
