All This, and Heaven Too

Rachel Field


FIELD, Rachel. All This, and Heaven Too. New York: Macmillan, 1938. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $800.

First edition of Field's best-selling historical novel, signed and dated by the author in the year of publication.

Best known for her children's books, which earned her the first Newberry Medal awarded a woman, Rachel Field based this popular historical novel about a French governess accused of murder on "the story of her renowned great-aunt. She was the famous 'Mademoiselle D.' of Paris—a central figure in the intriguing and still debated de Praeslin murder mystery" (ANB). The 1940 Oscar-nominated film adaptation starred Bette Davis in a performance influenced by long talks with Field, who was convinced of her great-aunt's innocence.

Book fine; lightest edge-wear to bright, near-fine dust jacket.
