Goblin Island

OXENHAM, Elsie J.

AUTHOR'S SCARCE FIRST BOOK

OXENHAM, Elsie J. Goblin Island

Collins, 1907.

First edition, first issue. 8vo. Red cloth with gilt lettering on spine and upper cover. Pictorial panel in colour on upper cover. 319pp. Colour frontis, colour pictorial title page and black and white plates with drawings on both sides, all by T.H. Robinson. A very good copy indeed. Neat pencil inscription dated 1907.

The British Library copy, considered to be first edition, has more illustrations, but all black and white. It does not have pictorial endpapers or gilt edges. This is almost certainly a variant first edition, although it would seem that no priority has been established. A scarce copy of Oxenham's first book.
