Pigeon Post - Arthur Ransome - 1941

£7.99

Product description

Pigeon Post is an English children's adventure novel by Arthur Ransome, published by Jonathan Cape in 1936. It was the sixth of twelve books Ransome completed in the Swallows and Amazons series. This edition published 1941.
The Swallows, Amazons and D's are camping in the Blackett family's garden at Beckfoot. The Swallow is not available for sailing. James Turner (Captain Flint) has sent word that he is returning from an expedition to South America prospecting for gold, and has sent "Timothy" ahead. As he can be let loose in the study, the Amazons and D's have already deduced that Timothy is an armadillo, and Titty, Dick and Peggy make a box for him, but he does not arrive. Slater Bob, an old slate miner, tells them a story about a lost gold vein in the fells. As Captain Flint has been unsuccessful in his prospecting trip, the children plan to prospect for gold on High Topps instead, as a surprise for Flint.
Green boards with title embossed at the top of the front cover. Title and author in gilt lettering on the spine. Wear and fading to spine which is bumped top and bottom. Bumping and wear to corners of boards. Inside front and rear covers are illustrated with a coloured map entitled 'Hill Country'. Other black and white illustrations throughout the book. End papers foxed. Top, fore and bottom edges foxed and tanned. Binding generally acceptable, although it should be noted that the binding at pages 172/173 is stretched.
Dimensions 20.5 x 14 x 3cm.
