An attractive copy of this surprisingly scarce classic of modern American children’s fiction. Half Magic was the first of seven books in a series, and unquestionably draws strongly on the tradition of E. Nesbit’s books such as Five Children & It. At the time of cataloguing we could find no comparable signed books by Edward Eager for sale online.
First edition, signed by the author; 8vo; pictorial title and illustrations by N.M. Bodecker; publisher’s cloth, first issue dust-jacket with correct price of $2.75 and list of other books on lower panel, sticker on upper panel for the 1954 Children’s Spring Book Festival, a little rubbing but overall very good.
