Emmeline Judith Rossner

Emmeline - Judith Rossner

Jonathan Cape, 1980, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Good+ DJ. Unlaminated DJ a little edgeworn and faded with some marks at the top of the upper panel, rubbing to the edges of the boards and a 1" closed tear to the head of the lower panel. Pages gently age-tanned.

From the cover: “The haunting story of Emmeline Mosher might seem the work of too strange and perverse a turn of chance had it not actually happened. At the age of ninety-four, a woman called Nettie Mitchell recounted the story to Harry Wiland, who passed it into the sympathetic and talented hands of Judith Rossner. It is a tale that withholds its mysteries until the eruptive moments when they can be contained no longer – one which compels the reader to follow Emmeline’s every action with compassion and a shiver of indefinable dread.”

Jacket designed by Tom Adams. Size: 8¾" x 5¾". 331 pages.
