"IT IS EASY TO DESCRIBED WHAT THIS BOOK IS NOT… BUT TO DESCRIBE WHAT IT IS IS MORE DIFFICULT"
MILNE, A.A. Four Days' Wonder. London: Methuen, (1933). Octavo, original orange cloth, original dust jacket. $350.
First edition of Milne's comic mystery novel, in the original dust jacket.
"It is easy to describe what this book is not; it is not a detective story although there is a body in it; nor is it a humorous book, although there is a laugh on every page; nor a romance, although there is a hero and a heroine. But to describe what it is is more difficult. Perhaps the only thing to say is that it is by A.A. Milne, and therefore entirely delightful" (from the dust jacket).
Book fine, only very minor soiling to spine of crisp original dust jacket. An about-fine copy.
