About This Item

Boston Toronto: Little, Brown & Co., 1958 Bates (1905-1974) was a British author who wrote his first book, The Two Sisters, in 1926. Over his whole career he wrote over 100 books. He is probably most famous for Uncle Silas, Love for Lydia, and the five Pop Larkin books. The Darling Buds of May is the introduction to Pop Larkin and his family, sort of a cross between the Beverly Hill-Billies and Are You Being Served. The sale item is the stated second printing of the first Ameican edition. Yellow cloth binding with green lettering on front board and spine. Binding tight and square with only minor bumping. The dust jacket has been clipped and is faded at the spine; several tears have been repaired. 219 pages. 12 mo (6.75 - 7-75 inches) YDIA
